Mt Hikurangi, the one near Galatea

Te Urewera

This is an overgrown and rarely used track to a highpoint above Galatea. The bush has grown up there but you can still get a bit of a view. From the top it is possible to continue off track to Duckville Hut but bush navigation skills would be important. I have included waypoints for the two decision points on that route to get to the hut.
