  • This walk was fabulous - very hard work, though. The walk to the summit from Brownlee Ave in Ngaruawahia has 1349 steps! It is not for the faint-hearted. Both my husband and I loved it. If you are not...  read more »
  • A very worthwhile walk. Well looked after and very pretty and awesome walking through the bush. Great look out when you get to the top. We'll definitely do it again.
  • Amazing track with stairway to heaven. About 1600 steps stair built to reach summit. Walk across many small streams, best after rainy days. Good view from summit view tower
  • Great but tough climb up the steps to the summit. Not for the unfit!
  • Nestled in the hills of Ngaruawahia is a walkway called the Hakarimatas. The walk starts off with a nice walk along side a fresh water stream. After a wee while you will cross a couple of small bridges and find yourself heading towards a small waterfall and then up some stairs and towards a small dam. Just before the dam is the stairway to the top of the Hakarimatas. Here you will see people from all walks of life. The Hakarimata walkers are all friendly. As challenging as this climb is the reward is when your at the top. It is one of the nicest places to walk up.
  • Beautiful track and always with many enthusiastic and caring people.
