  • Desperado

    It's a hand built, very technical trail with lots of roots that you often drop off, frequently wet and slippery. It's on the south (non-sunny) side of the hill in regenerating native forest rather than the plantation forest of most of the Whaka Forest trails. It branches off Tuhoto Ariki and comes out at the Blue Lake.
