Tramping track

Due to Kauri dieback, there is a detour in place taking you from Workman Road up to Mt Workman via the road to the Mangatangi Dam, crossing the Dam wall and following the old service road, quickly rising through regenerating bush and pasture to Mt Workman. You can enjoy views across Mangatangi Dam, south towards Huntly and east to the Coromandel Ranges. The track continues through native bush around the top of Whakatiwai Basin, ending at the junction of the Whakatiwai Track. This track is steep and narrow in parts.
