This is the main climbing trail for Zone 3, it starts down by the swamp and climbs gently up towards Te Puke Rd, where it splits. The western split heads towards the summit and tracks, as well as a link into Zone 5. There are some amazing views from the top.

Trail name origin: Te Rangi Hononga (Teh – Rah – ngee – Hor – nor – ngah)
When you reach the top of this uphill ride try and develop a special feeling and connection to the land. Whilst you are in that state of mind ask for the blessings of the ancestors who dwell in TE RANGI HONONGA, a place where the spirits gather in the heavenly skies.
