Rapurapu Kauri Track
The first 600 m are through a previously grazed area that is being revegetated using Radiata pine and tree lucerne as nursery crops. The track enters a terrace of Tawa forest then drops down to the Rapurapu Stream which it then follows, before reaching a boardwalk at the base of the kauri trees. The largest tree measures 180 cm in diameter and 14 m to the first branch.
Duration: 5 km return via same track
Getting there: On SH29, about 4 km past the Kaimai Summit towards the Waikato side, a short gravel road on the left (not signposted) leads to a parking area where the track begins.
