Taukani Hill and Pivot Rock walk at Karangahake

We will walk to the start of the windows walk at Karangahake and then bush bash about 10m to a very old and hidden track that remains in good condition. The track takes one to the top of Taukani Hill which is on the opposite side of the Waitawheta River from Mt Karangahake. At the top we will explore some old mine sites, an old house site, and the places where there were two cable ways dropping material to the Ohinemuri and Waitawheta rivers. Finally we will walk around to the famous ‘pivot rock’. Party will be led by Bob Jordan and Kevin Montague who have made a number of trips into the area over the last 12 months.

Easy to Moderate. Bring torches.
