Taranaki Pouakai Crossing
The Pouakai Crossing is Mt Taranaki’s premier one day walk. You’ll get great views of Mt Taranaki, out over the north Taranaki countryside to the coast and inland to Mt Ruapehu. You’ll get up close to the towering lava columns of the Dieffenbach cliffs, cross the active erosion scar of the Boomerang slip, and see the red water of the Kokowai Stream caused by manganese oxide oozing from the earth. There’s an optional side trip to the Stony River’s Bells Falls.
