Creeping along CARKEEK • Carkeek Ridge, Tararua Forest Park

Mysterious Loch Maree • Loch Maree, Fiordland National Park

Rawhiti Cave, Takaka • Hidden on the steep, forested hills behind Takaka, in Golden Bay, is a remarkable and increasingly popular natural feature – Rawhiti Cave.

Bealey Spur – Waimakariri Valley Loop, Arthur’s Pass National Park • An adventurous one or two day hike exploring alpine tarns along the Black Range.

Climie, Upper Hutt • The dark green slopes of Mount Climie (862m) loom somewhat forebodingly behind Upper Hutt, but this peak is an easy half-day, out-and-back hike well within reach of many families.

Matamataharakeke Track, Coromandel Forest Park • Walk an old logging trail used by millers and gold miners to reach Kennedy Bay.

WALKING HOME • What’s it like to walk the length of the island you grew up in? For Kirsten O’Regan, Te Araroa was a homecoming and a reminder of how lucky we are

ALONE ON TE ARAROA • Emma Connell walked Te Araroa Trail solo and found herself challenged beyond measure. But it was also the most rewarding and bravest thing she has ever done.

ADVICE FOR FAMILIES

KEEPING IT IN THE FAMILY • Walking the TA as a family could be the biggest adventure, writes Katrina Megget

10 HIGHLIGHTS OF TE ARAROA • Mark Weatherall, the executive director of Te Araroa Trust, nominates his favourite sections of the trail
