This walk has some quite steep sections in it, so you need to be prepared. There are two huts along the way, so there is plenty off opportunity to have a rest.
The walk starts along Moanui Valley Road and follows the Koranga River, continue past the first swing-bridge to reach Koranga Forks Hut. If you take the swing bridge it will lead you to Tawa Hut. This will take about 2 hours.
The trip between the Koranga Forks Hut and the Tawa Hut is along the Kahunui Stream bed. The route between the two huts should not be attempted in bad weather when high river conditions may become dangerous, this should take about 2 - 3 hours.
The track from Tawa Hut back to Moanui Valley Road starts at the end of the hut clearing and follows the Kahunui Stream for about 10 minutes, once you hit the fork continue up the Kahunui and into the Kahuiti Stream. From there eventually a steep descent down through farmland takes you back to the Kornga River and Moanui swingbridge.

Lake Waikaremcana. Loop track just offNgamaer track 2kms from the visitor centre - takes 30 mins return. Good to experience a touch of night bush and to see massive rata tree believed to be over 1000 yrs old!!
