High Point

Loop route with plenty of hill climbing and no trails over grade 3, taking you through native and exotic forest and recently cleared areas, with views over the surrounding countryside from the high points of the trails. Start and finish shown at point in forest just in from junction of Lynmore Ave with Tarawera Rd, but the best starting point would be from the Redwoods i-site in Longmile Ave, heading towards Tarawera Rd on the Mokopuna trail

Badly rutted going into native bush and switchback area. Looks like hoof marks?
