This walk is for all the tree huggers out there.

You will take a short bus ride to the Opua Forest where you will start walking amongst the majestic kauri. Be in awe of these amazing trees. The viewpoint is in the crown of the trees.

Backtrack the road a bit to the ridge line track, which will take you to the School Road lookout.

On the way through this regenerating forest, you will be amazed by the variety of trees you see. A bush lovers delight.

The view at the lookout takes in most of the Bay. Waitangi, Russell, Te Haumi, and Opua are close by. Piercy Island, the home of "the hole in the rock", calls from afar.

From the lookout, it's all downhill to the ferry at Paihia.

Feel free to wander at your leisure around Paihia or back to the base for a social drink together.

Duration - Walking time 3 hours.
Grade - Fairly hard.
Ticket includes transport – bus and ferry.
Max. Walkers: 20
