Utiwai is an easy to intermediate climbing trail filled with Tawa, Rewarewa and Kohekohe. There are a couple sections where you will pass Miro, Matai and a couple Rimu trees are hidden nearby. The Utiwai line was originally scouted by Mana Cycle Group with some slight adjustments by the contractor during construction.
