Turn off State Highway 3 at Ashhurst, and drive north through Ashhurst onto Pohangina Road. At Raumai, turn right onto Pohangina Valley East Road, driving past Totara Reserve and Takapari Road until reaching Piripiri Bridge. The campsite is on the left just before the bridge. It has a short steep access track that may be slippery when wet.
ACCESS: Large motorhomes may have difficulty managing the steep gravel access into the reserve. Please take care if attempting this.
- Just south, is Kahikatea Walk, a 30 min loop track
- Further south, is Pettifar & Gilchrist Loop Tracks, about 1-2 hours each
