Otanewainuku Summit Track

2 hours return | moderate

The loop track to the summit (an extinct volcano) is steep in parts.

It starts behind the shelter and the view from the top is worth the climb. A tower constructed on the summit (645 metres) offers panoramic views from East Cape to Mount Tarawera and Rotorua, and across the Mamaku Plateau to Mount Ruapehu.
