This boggy track to the southern tip of the Ruahine Range is recommended for experienced trampers. About 20 minutes from the carpark the track climbs steeply to the windswept leatherwood tops and along to Wharite Road. On a clear day there are views as far as Kapiti Island, over the windmills farm to Mt Bruce and the Tongariro mountains. Located 12km west of Woodville, the drive to the top is not for the fainthearted, the road is steep, winding and unsealed. It is the gateway to many bushwalks and tramps in the Ruahine Ranges.
Allow 3 - 4 hours for this tramp.
