Te Hoe Track

Whirinaki Te Pua-a-Tane Conservation Park


This track provides access to the more remote areas of Whirinaki Te Pua-a-Tāne Conservation Park. Tramping in this area is rugged and requires high fitness levels.

The network of tracks gives trampers options varying in length from 3 to 7 days. The trip can be started at the Okahu Road end or at Pukahunui Road end or walked as a round trip incorporating Moerangi Hut, Mangamate Hut and Upper Whirinaki Hut. This guide follows from south to north. To access the Pukahunui track end, follow the road signs for the Whirinaki Track as far as the Plateau Road turnoff. Keep to Pine Milling Road and you will drop down to the Pukahunui Stream, cross two bridges and the track starts about 1 km further down the road. Access to the northern end of the track is through the Okahu valley, about 9 km past the Minginui turnoff on Ruatahuna Road. The track begins at the end of Okahu Valley Road (about 11 km).
