Pararaha Valley Track is located in Whatipu regional park
The Pararaha Valley Track is a great track that has had a lot of work in the last five years changing it from a waist deep mudfest to a nice boardwalk stroll. A popular way to access the Pararaha Valley campground from the Whatipu coast.
The track also offers a great link for three tramping circuits. The first starts and ends at the Lone Kauri carpark and joins the Odlins Timber Track, Pararaha Stream, Pararaha Valley Track, and Buck Taylor Track before linking with the Zion Ridge Track back to the carpark. This circuit is popular with multisporters and experienced trampers.
The second is the loop from Karekare carpark and allows people to link the Pohutukawa Glade Walk, Karekare Beach, and Tunnel Point, with the Pararaha Valley, Buck Taylor and Zion Hill track back to the Karekare carpark. This is a great circuit offering a mix of landscapes from beach and wetlands to coastal forest and cliffs.
The third is the circuit from the Whatipu carpark, allowing people to link the Gibbon, Muir and Pararaha Valley Tracks with the Whatipu Coastal walk.
