Walking Track Category: Long Walks
2 hr 30 min – 3 hr one way, advanced tramping track, dogs with a DOC permit only.
Walk to a lookout with extensive views.
Cooper’s Castle Track begins at the top of the Okiwi/Port Fitzroy Hill and ascends the southern ridge, under a forest canopy with views of both sides of the island.
At a signposted junction reached after 2 hours, a 5 minute detour leads to a lookout, where a large volcanic-rock bluff gives extensive views of Okiwi Basin and the Whangapoua estuary.
The main track descends to Kaiaraara Track, then its a short walk to the Lower Kauri Dam.
Take care at the lookout – there is an extremely steep drop off.
