Other tracks

Walking track

There is thepossibility of slips after heavy rain, however you can still walk up the road to the dam, allowing you to do the Cossey Massey Loop track. We recommend you go up the Massey track first - across the dam face and then down the road, or Cossey Gorge track, there is a link back to the Hunua Falls Car park that goes across the stream - you will get wet feet but only for 5 minutes in this direction.
