Waihua - Saddle Biv - Apiti Hut Trip

Te Urewera

A really interesting trip in the Ureweras. The Waihua - Saddle section of this is untracked, the river providing good access but you have to make sure you go up the right branches.

The rest is all well marked but is overgrown and/or steep in places
