Around half the Summit Road Society's  (external link) 150 hectare Ohinetahi Bush Reserve has suffered damage from the recent fires. Take particular care on the tracks in these areas.  


Dogs are prohibited on these tracks.


Facilities available at Sign of the Bellbird and Governors Bay Hall.


The terrain is steep and most tracks are narrow, requiring reasonable fitness and surefootedness. Tramping boots are recommended.

Access the reserve from either the Summit Road or Governors Bay and create your own circuit.
