Mt Tauhara Track (G8)

Mount Tauhara track, Taupo.

NOTE: this track is now closed to all public entry.  Signs went up indicating the track’s closure in 2014 and I myself went to investigate twice in 2015…and yes, the Mt Tauhara track over the private property is now permanently closed to visitation.

    This track had been closed by landowner when we turned up on 11th Feb. The track signage pictured above had been overlaid with a smaller metal sign with “no access” or similar and threatening trespassers with prosecution. Someone had scrawled “racist” on the sign. We have often trespassed, but it seemed unwise to continue on this occasion and we went to Kinloch instead.

    This track is closed for public.
    Trespassers will be prosecuted.
