We start at the lower end of Moirs Hill Road and walk through bush for about twenty minutes until we arrive at Tolhoph Road/Araroa Road intersection. We then cross the road and pass through a rural subdivision, over an old airstrip, then towards the top we enter Dunn’s Bush ridge track. This is a stunning piece of native bush lovingly restored by the late Arthur Dunn.

At Sugarloaf we will pause for a drink and hotshot before continuing on through farmland following orange markers until we arrive at Remingers/Aharoa Road intersection.

We now get our first look at the new section of the Te Araroa National Walkway. This part of the walk is about 5 km. Somewhere along the new walkway we will stop for another drink and snack break, perhaps overlooking the Puhoi Cheese Factory.

The walk then traverses a new swing bridge (courtesy of the Tindall Foundation). The walkway is through a wide diversity of native bush all the way to the end when we reach the ridge overlooking Puhoi.

Proceed now down to Historic Puhoi Village and the Puhoi pub for a relaxing lunch and drink.
This is a walk with lots of different terrain and some stunning views.

Good strong footwear is necessary and walking poles are recommended.
