Points of interest along the walk​

Point 1: Hunue Falls Car Park

Plenty of car parking at the end of the road. The toilets were very clean. A great place for a picnic and a swim at the falls.

Point 2: Massey Cosseys Track

Cosseys Dam 2 Ks – 45 min. There are no signs to be seen until you cross the bridge. Once you are across the bridge, turn left to walk up to the dam, or right to the water falls. The walkway is a good width and has a thin layer of gravel on top. 10 min into the walk, on the right, is a very steep stagger up the Massey track. Avoid this track. Carry on down into a creek and out. Be prepared to do a lot of step aerobics before the next turn off to the left which runs up to the Cosseys access Rd.

From then on to the dam is level walking up to the car park just a 5 min walk to the dam on sealed road. Good toilets, tables and chairs to sit on for your lunch. With a pleasant view of the dam.

To Massey turnoff – 1.7 Ks – 45 min. Keep to the left and walk along the dam wall. Just before the road up to the caretakers house, turn left for the track
Wairoa, Cosseys track. A good track, again gravel with a few little up hills. With a few steps thrown in for good luck to toughen up the legs. There is a look out on the left, with a view of the lake.

Back to Car park via Massey Track – 2.4 ks – 1 Hour. The Massey track is well gravelled and wide, mostly down hill all the way, but at a good gradient.
