Description

This section of the Hump Ridge Track leaves behind the historic remnants of Port Craig, and strikes out on a more roughhewn singletrack. While the going is still pretty easy, there are some roots and mud to contend with, and you may find yourself wishfully reminiscing about perfectly constructed boardwalks, but you soon will be too immersed in the scenery to miss them too badly.

The track contours along the coast with glimpses of the of the clear, blue-green water through the trees. You'll pass Camp Creek, and continue hiking through dense woods with a few small stream crossings. Eventually, the trail winds down a small hillside to end at Breakneck Creek and Blowhole Beaches.

Flora & Fauna

Lowland podocarp forest. Many birds such as robins, bellbirds, tomtits, fantails, tuī, and wood pigeons.
