Information

Time: 2 hr return

A pleasant walk uphill through changing alpine rainforest with the option of diverting to a lookout point offering views of the mountain and out to the coast.

The walk begins at the North Egmont Visitor Centre and follows the boardwalk up past the Camphouse and on to the Holly Hut Track. It passes the Ambury Monument then climbs numerous steps, eventually reaching the Veronica Loop track turnoff.

Here is the option of continuing a further 10 minutes walk up the Holly Hut track to the lookout point. The Veronica Loop Track descends through montane forest, emerging from the trees at the Camphouse and returning to the visitor centre.

Be prepared for changes in the weather, take warm clothes including a waterproof raincoat

Great walk, even for beginners! But the last part is very steep! It is a 4WD track so no orientation problems.

It has a beautiful lookout over New Plymouth, the hiking trail in a very good location.

Nice walk, but no real views of Mt Taranaki. Great scenery through and nice quality track.

Great views but a long uphill climb at the beginning with not alot of views. At the turning point you then see the great views.
