Putanui Point Track leads over a forest-covered point to a lookout, 1.5 hours return.
The Nydia track is a wonderful 2 day walk (approx. 4-5 hour walk from either end), it crosses 2 saddles with superb views and follows the sheltered shoreline meandering through a variety of regenerating native bush and beautiful untouched forest.
