This is a lovely short track in the Waipoua Forest Conservation Estate, which showcases excellent examples of the kauri tree at different development stages. The track is named after younger kauri, which are also called “Rickers”. Young kauri / Rickers carry short branches up their trunks until they are about 120 years old.
You can access the track from State Highway 12 near the heart of Waipoua Forest Conservation Estate. The track starts at the car park on the north side of the Waipoua River Bridge indicated by an entrance sign.

Fantastic trees! A well marked and laid out series of walks.
Beautiful nature and stunning trees! A must for NZ travellers.
Left us speechless, awesome experience.
The signs to other big trees in the waipoua forest are not very clear. We missed them most of the time.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
