Steep climb to a lookout over Lake Kohangatera.

Short but demanding climb to the summit of a prominent hill overlooking Lake Kohangatera. Although it is hard work, the effort is worthwhile because the lookout offers great views of Lake Kohangatera and its wetland.

This track used to also connect Lake Kohangapiripiri and Lake Kohangatera, but with the permanent removal of the Gollans Stream boardwalk this loop is no longer possible.

NB: The track map still shows the extension to Lake Kohangatera and over the now removed boardwalk. It is possible to ride down to Gollans Stream but you have to return back up the hill to the lookout.

Access Info

From the Cameron Ridge end of Lake Kohangapiripiri drop down to lake level and then climb up a steep, grassy track to the lookout over Lake Kohangatera.

The second half of this track (the eastern half) is actually closed. The walkway over the water and the reed needs looks like it was washed away...
