Odlin Timber Track is located in Karekare regional park
Though the track goes all the way to Orange Peel Corner (providing access to the Huia area networks), the Odlin Timber Track is mostly used to access the Pararaha and Cowans streams. This is a pity as combining the track with the Walker Ridge, Muir, Pararaha Valley, Buck Taylor and Zion Ridge tracks makes for a complicated sounding but actually great half day loop walk with some great views, good climbs and not much in the way of crowds.
Odlins track itself can be slippery under foot and care should be taken during winter and after wet weather.
Though the Pararaha and Cowans streams are popular off-track routes, they are not maintained by park staff and not recommended for people new to tramping.
Please seek advice from the Arataki Visitor Centre or Canyonz (a registered guiding company) if you are thinking of going to these areas.
Suitable for people of reasonable fitness and experience.
Theft from vehicles is not common but unfortunately can happen.
You should take the same reasonable precautions you take when parking at other locations and remember to lock your vehicle and take your valuables with you.
