Harold Creek access to the Wilberg tops

Located on

  • P1

From SH6, follow the gravel bed of Harold Creek up to the base of the hill and pick up an only intermittently maintained marked route on the true right. GRID REF This leads up steeply to an open rata ridge that continues to the scrub, where the track is getting overgrown. Above the Mt Wilberg trig, the open tops offer excellent travel (and campsites by tarns) through to the main Wilberg Range. A rockbiv is marked on a NZAC 1962 map roughly east of pt 1310m but i havent seen it. The climb onto pt 1665m is steep but straight forward when dry. Time: Road to pt 1665m, 7hrs.
