Other tracks


From Anawhata Road, opposite the Chateau Mosquito Track entrance, Hettig Track descends steeply with some steps, then follows the valley floor over a rough, indistinct route to the Marawhara Stream at the site of the old dam. Note: Extreme caution is required when going downstream from here.
