Rangiwahia Scenic Reserve Walk

Time: 1 hr | Distance: 2.9km return | Fitness: low-moderate

Discover this hidden stand of native virgin bush reserve in the historic settlement of Rangiwahia Village. There are some stunning viewpoints along the way, and bird life is plentiful at certain times of the year.


A pink triangle marks the entrance of the paper road, with pink markers used to guide you along the track itself. Take a walk, most people take one hour to complete it, and it’s well worth taking the time to experience.  

Left untouched by early settlers, this 130 acre native virgin bush reserve is a beautiful treasure, with many native species including rimu, miro, matai, maire, kahikatea, rewarewa and several species of rata.
