View of  Sentinel Rock from the track

This track is signposted off the Tuahu Track at the Tuahu Kauri approximately 25 mins from the carpark. After a steep climb it travels along an undulating ridge to a view of Sentinel Rock, an isolated rock outcrop east of the Kaimai Range. The view of the surrounding valley is spectacular on a clear day. The old track to the top of the rock is considered dangerous and should not be used. Return on the same track.

Getting there

Located within the Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park, these walks begin at the end of Hot Springs Road, just south of Katikati off State Highway 2.

Plan and prepare

Please consult a topographic map.
