Mt Hikurangi, the one near Galatea
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.

pennystove It is very overgrown now, I know a few farmers there now so have good access. Tried to get there via the Ohutu stream but wife had an accident and there were no track markers at all past the waterfall.
