Very easy access of the state highway and you're into another world. The things I love most about this walk were the interpretation signs that explain the huge variety of trees that are in this forest. I also appreciated the bird life. Since 1995 DOC has been active in pest management and it really shows. So nice to wandering in some NZ bush with regular bird activity.
Hearing one of the rarest birds in New Zealand, the Kokako. Near exposed remains of forest knocked over by Taupo eruption.
