About the path

Hunua Ranges Regional Park is a natural playground with bush clad ranges, streams and magnificent vistas. This loop walk combines the Suspension Bridge Track with part of the Wairoa Cossey Track.

Start at the iconic suspension bridge over Wairoa Stream. The bridge is located near the car park on the Wairoa Reservoir Access Road (off Moumoukai Road).

Follow the Suspension Bridge Track through lush vegetation, climbing to a spectacular lookout platform above the Wairoa Reservoir.

Continue on the track to the junction with the Wairoa Cossey Track. Turn right at the junction and follow the track back down to the road.

There's a scenic picnic area and public toilets on this route.

Dogs are allowed on this track under control and on-leash, however must be kept away from the dam and water supply.

To prevent the spread of kauri dieback, large sections of the Hunua Ranges Regional Park are now closed. Please stay on the walking tracks, and follow the instructions to clean your shoes before and after your visit.
