A perfect introduction to the Waiorongomai Valley for all ages. This well graded track follows the Waiorongomai stream through regenerating bush before stopping at the base of Butlers Incline for a ‘Gold Rush’ for the kids. Follow the intact Piako County Tramline past a mining adit to see how gold was moved out of the Valley for processing.
Duration: 3 hours. Track grading: 3. Car pool to Waiorongomai carpark. Gold coin donation appreciated.
