This trail I really do recommend! Awesome views. We just passed 10 other people on our 6 hour walk. At the end we took a nice swim.
Nice bushwalk with good views of the lake..... not crowded. Finish at a hot water beach with a hot spring! Nice ending, bring your swimwear.

We were very happy because we did it in 6 hours. We do not know about the hot pools at the end, a surprise, wonderful and magic.
Good walk in the bush with lovely views of the valley, but definitely too long. Hot springs at the end are hot and cold which means burning or freezing.
A great hike! 15 km in beautiful native forest to get to a hot spring at the beach on the lake. A reasonable fee for the water taxi to get back, if you do not to walk back.

The walk is not so hard and you even have a hot spring at the end. Great!!
The track heads along the south end of Lake Tarawera. First 3.2km are mainly in bushland but after this you get some nice views.
Nice track with the possibility to go back by water taxi.
