Harwoods Hole Track Reviews
A lovely, easy walk in through the beech trees and then climb towards the end to see the hole. Took us about 3-4 hours because husband chats alot to strangers more »
Un sentiero di circa 40 minuti a piedi, che parte da un parcheggio dopo aver percorso una lunga strada sterrata, porta a questa voragine alla quale è pericoloso avvicinarsi troppo essendoci dei massi ... more »A path of about 40 minute walk from a parking lot after a long dirt road, leads to this sinkhole which is dangerous to get too close because of the slippery boulders.
A nice long walk through the rugged bush to the cave. Be sure to take the track off the side which crawls up the hillside opening onto expansive views off the cliff face.
The road to this track is a bit sketchy and pot-holed but the walk is breathtaking. The forest at the begging is like no other I have seen so far in New Zealand and feels magical. The track splits near the end into two walks: Harwood Hole and The Lookout. Do both. They are both amazing. The Lookout was an incredible view and the rock formations are so unique. Both walks at the end are made for slow and steady and could easily be a bit dangerous, but the views are worth it as they are awe inspiring.
