Pukehuia

The back door entrance to the Bay of Islands. After a 30 minute bus ride walkers assemble on the edge of the Tongatapu wetland , a local revegetation project will offer the call of the Fern bird as you cross the flats to the base of the hill you will spend most of the day tramping all over.
The first climb takes you to views overlooking the Whangamumu Harbour, welcome shelter to many coastal travellers.

Turning away from the Pacific views, majestic mature forest of podocarp and broadleaf canopy, the trail meanders and undulates you progressively up through a young kauri forest with opportunities to rest and regroup with your guides.
As the land levels out, final glimpses of views south to the Poor Knights and Mimiwhangata.
Pukehuia is a significant maunga on the landscape and as you cross over to the north side the first views of the Cavalli Islands, the northern side of the Bay and the majority of the 145 islands are scattered below your feet.

Take a well- earned rest before beginning your gradual descent to Oke Bay, a beautiful sickle of sand, tempting you for a swim before re-joining your bus for a leisurely ride home.
