Hi Gregor I remember the trig on the summit of Phyllis Fell and I see there is a trig marked on Spot Height 1582. When we were there it was an October and spring flowers were ...
I've done the track twice and both times hiked north to Wanui Bay from Marahau, but would actually recommend the reverse, ending at Wanui Bay is pretty meh, then you need to wait for your ...
Thanks @Ian_H and @Yarmoss Looks like I'll think about doing this later in the year getting closer to summer.
@izogi Yes that's Pinnacle Spur alright. The contour lines match up perfectly.

I reckon it would be possible as there are no restrictions on camping along the trail except in Northland I think. Others will be better informed than I am. You can check the official Te ...
My understanding is that groups of hunters are only allowed to stay at the hut for 3 days in a row and must otherwise camp when others are there and want the bunks. Because of ...

When I did it we went from east to west which I think is great because walking down next to the beach is a beautiful way to finish the trip. What I would not recommend is ...

The 2 saddles are barely alpine passes and are pretty easy to manage.In fact they are both still in the tree line at the top of each one.Ada Pass had a wee sign on it ...
Yeah I've done the Abel Tasman Inland Track teamed with the Coastal Track, and it's certainly a super walk out of season, when the coastal track can be reasonably quiet particularly the top half. I'd agree ...
I’d like to do the section from Whangarei heads north to Russell one day. Have done plenty of overnight trips in the middle part here.
Going back for another go this weekend. I have been told very recently that most of the wreckage was recovered around 20 years ago. Apparently this can be found in reliable published material.

Was wondering what had happened to you, saw your entry in Maropea Forks a day before us. Our route from there was Otukota, MP range, Crow, McKinnon, Waterfall... Shame you missed the track, it had ...
I've been and done it. Due to 200mls of rain two days before it was very muddy in parts, and the sphagnum moss bogs were hazards to avoid. Elevation went from 310 to 700, and ...
Just a quick note for non locals to let you know that there has been quite a lot of damage to tracks from the recent floods. This is widespread and mainly involves washouts and slipping. ...
I've just been informed by a mate who was up the Styx yesterday that the river has changed course in a couple of places damaging the track route. Access is now somewhat problematic and to ...

Quite possibly! Parts of the bush adjacent Hauroko used to be quite good going and other places you used to strike away from the shore and use ridges. If I still lived down there I'd ...

as of dec 18 the track is clear and followable from the hut to the hot pools. The hut is still the same but clean, weather tight and repainted. See remotehuts.co.nz or facebook for details.
