We didn't do the entire circuit, just the point-to-point crossing from the Egmont Visitor Center to the Mangorei Road. You'll need a shuttle (easily hired) to do the one-day crossing. The track goes through forests and subalpine habitats, including a wetlands. We got lucky and...More
I’ve done this track twice now in the hope of seeing mighty Taranaki from the top. Sadly I’ve not been in luck but I’ll definitely try again because the track is such fun with its 38385939 steps!! If you’re trying to get to the top...More

Started at North Egmont Visitor centre and finished at Mangorei Rd. Parked one car at the start of the track and one at the end. For us it was a long trek, we took about 10-11 hours, but had quite a few stops on the...More
An experience following ex Cyclone Cook Easter weekend 2017. We entered from North Egmont Visitors centre and trekked towards Holly Hut. Amazing views experienced with the wet conditions. It was slow going to get to Holly (4hrs ish) our fault with taking too many photos....More
