Coppermine Creek Track: Time: 2 hr return

This is a pleasant popular walk through lowland forest to an area where copper was mined.

Coppermine Track: Time: 2 - 3 hr

This track provides a more strenuous option for returning to the carpark than the Coppermine Creek Track. There are views across southern Hawke’s Bay from the top portion of track, which passes through farmland. Do not disturb stock and leave gates as you find them. There are steep drop-offs adjacent to parts of the track so proceed with care and keep to the marked route.
