An easy track leads from Kaiaraara Hut (28 bunks) up north branch of Kaiarara Stream.
After an hour or so the first remains of historic kauri dams can be seen.
The track continues to climb, with a last steep section consisting of hundreds of steps leading to the 627m summit.
Continue on to Mt Heale and around the headwaters of Kaiarara Stream which the track drops down to and back to the hut.
