A trail that initially heads upriver close to the Waiwhakaiho River with the occasional short pinch climb before turning away from the river and then falling gently down back to the west before another short climb and descent through a slightly more difficult section and exits onto the gravel road that leads back up the hill to the new cemetery.

Access Info

Entry opposite the exit to the Hihil trail.
