Track Description

This is a flat, easy walk – though some sections can be muddy – through 40 hectares of magnificent ancient forest with huge kahikatea, lowland tōtara and mataī. Near Brake Road look out for a hollow tōtara stump large enough to encircle a family. There is a short side trip to one of the historic saw pits in the area.

Getting There

From Geraldine town centre, take SH79 north out of town and over the Orari River Bridge. Keep left as you come off the bridge and follow along the Inland Route 72 for 3kms before turning left onto Peel Forest Road.  Stay on Peel Forest for approximately 13 kilometres before turning left onto Blandswood Road.  The walking tracks starts at the end of Blandswood Road.
