Hike: Pinnacles, Kauaeranga Kauri Trail

The ruggedly beautiful hike of the Kauaeranga Kauri Trail in the Coromandel takes you through lush forest and steep mountain ranges which follows a historic packhorse route. A slow and steady hike of 7km eventually leads you to the Pinnacles Hut – an overnight spot for those that prefers to do the hike over two days or drop their packs before carrying on for the last 2km to the Pinnacles summit.

What begins as a steep climb on a well-constructed stepped path soon morph into iron rungs attached to giant rocks which leads you to the summit (759m). It’s a difficult hike but the 360 panoramic view was well worth it.
