Pouakai Crossing, Mount Taranaki

Part of the multi-day Pouakai Circuit, the 19km, eight-hour Pouakai Crossing track is one of New Zealand's best one-day walks.

Wind across the lower slopes of Mt Taranaki – highlights include towering cliffs, a mighty waterfall, a sphagnum moss swamp and a small mountain lake or tarn that perfectly reflects the mountain peak on this day walk version of the popular 2–3 day Pouakai Circuit.

Normally a summer walk, weather on the mountain changes rapidly – you must have a good level of fitness and be well prepared with suitable clothing and equipment for all weather and conditions. Snow, high rainfall and storm damage can make tracks impassable – many rivers and streams are unbridged. For more information please check the Department of Conservation website or visit the Egmont National Park Visitor Centre.

For more information visit the Department of Conservation website or contact our friendly Distinction New Plymouth Hotel team who can provide assistance with information.
