This is a difficult, though fun, track down to the World War II gun emplacements and bunkers at the southern tip of the Te Kopahau Reserve overlooking Sinclair Head.

From near the southern end of Te Kopahau drop down a 20% slope for 1.2km. Around the bottom of this slope Waipapa West heads off down to the adjacent valley floor - though don't think that's an easy way out. If you're still keen, then continue by going up 50m over the next 0.5km.
