At 688m Kohukonui Peak is the highest summit in Auckland and can be reached on the Waharau - Kohukohunui - Mangatangi - Waharau loop on the eastern Hunua Range.For Aucklanders, this trip offers a refreshing wilderness experience without a big drive into the whops. Take Waharau Ridge Track and then Kohukohunui Track. There is an option to camp at Adam's campground if you want an overnight trip. Continue along to the summit and then join the Mangatangi Ridge Track back to Waharau Ridge Track and the start of the tramp.
