As fate would have it, I walked the Leslie Karamea earlier this week (from Salisbury hut down). Track is pretty easy and in excellent condition except between Karamea bend and Crow hut. This section is ...

I have to disagree with the above posts regarding Deadmans. I've been down it twice in the last few years and found it very straightforward. Yes, rough and boggy, the odd windfall, but not hard ...

I'd change your day 4 to spend the day checking out Crucible Lake and overnight at Siberia hut again or walk down to Kerin Forks hut for that night. Then to pick up the extra day ...

One thing you can always do with the Heaphy is do it back to back. Start from Brown Hut, spend a rest day in Karamea, then head back. You can mix up the huts, perhaps Saxon and ...

Great! I’m planning to just follow the crossing track back to Whakapapa. Figure the loop will be a longish day.
Ruahine thanks for your help - much appreciated.

Thanks Berend. I've also got the book "Pioneers of Martins Bay", an old 1947 book by a adult who grew up there as a child. She describes her amazement at seeing a horse for the ...
