Unearth hot springs with a hefty 3 hour tramp to get there.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You must cross a FORD to access this area which can flood in times of heavy rain. Check with Napier i-SITE before you commence this walk or the sign on Puketitiri Road at the Apley Road turn off – 30 minutes from Napier. Drive past Puketitiri settlement; follow the signs to the hot springs, along Pakaututu Road and Makahu Road. Mangatutu Hot springs are a short walk down from the road at the first exit. Mangatainoka Hot Springs are a further 3½ – 4 hour one way walk from ‘The Gums’ carpark at the road end. This is a fantastic one day walk along the Mohaka River through beech forest past Te Puia Lodge with a welcome hot dip at the end. You can stay overnight at Te Puia Lodge, a serviced DOC Hut. Hut Tickets available to purchase from Napier i-SITE, and pick up a Heritage Trail brochure as well. From Te Puia Lodge you can also venture further into the Kaweka Ranges for multi day hikes.
