Tuesday 4th January 2022 – A short climb up Rangiwahia Hut Track out in the Ruahines on a fairly warm 30 degree day.
Official DoC information page and map… Rangiwahia Hut Track.
Took me around 2 Hours 20 minutes with a day pack including short stops along the way to cool off.
Elevation gain is around 500m – 580m. First part is relatively steady, before a short 80m drop down to the arch bridge and then a steeper climb of about 350m up to the hut.
If time permits, can do a much longer loop via Mangahuia.
