3125 Kakepuku

Sunday 26th May 2024

Kakepuku is a volcano situated 10 minutes from Te Awamutu, where we will walk on a shared mountain bike trail that gently climbs up through regenerating bush to the summit which has magnificent views of the surrounding Waipa and Waikato landscape. The first 3/4 of the track gently sidles around and up the mountain after which the track continues along the ridge through native forest in the ancient crater. There are a few steps to be climbed at the end to get to the lookout tower, which has information boards detailing the historical and cultural significance of the reserve. This is an easy walk but is pleasant with tui and kereru often seen and heard in the reserve. I would suggest bringing a thermos to have morning tea at the summit. Expect to walk three hours in total and we can stop for a social lunch afterwards.
