Add this on if you're feeling fit to the Whites Bay Loop Track.

Starting from about 680m, the track climbs to the summit of Mt Robertson at 1036m. From the Loop Track it takes about 1 hour to get to the summit. There are a few downhills but it's mostly really hard climbing, mostly unrideable. There is a radar station at the top of Mt Robertson to let ou know you're there.

The descent is great fun! Expect it to be NZ Grade 5 (really really hard).
