Tupapakurua Falls

Time: 4 - 5 hr return
Distance: 11 km

Begins at Fishers Road, National Park Village.Walk about 30 minutes down Fishers Road to the start of the Tupapakurua Falls Track (left side of road). The track has been upgraded by the local community in partnership with the Department of Conservation. It begins with an easy 20 minute walk to the Taranaki Lookout. From this point the track becomes a back country adventure track and is suitable for experienced trampers only. The track follows a ridge and then descends steeply to a stream. There are good stands of tawa, mature rimu, miro and totara to see along the way. Climbing from the stream, the track winds its way around bluffs to a good lookout point with views of the falls. Return via the same track
