Lindemann Loop Track

End of Lindemann Rd, Katikati

This walk starts at the end of Lindemann Road and can be walked in either direction.

After going through a closed gate there is a track junction after 40 m. The easiest direction is to take the right hand Lindemann Pack Track that runs up a short spur before levelling out.

After approximately 2 hours the track meets a junction with the Wairoa Pack Track. This is a pleasant open spot that gives excellent views over the Wairoa and Waitengaue valleys. To the northwest the Ananui Falls are clearly visible. A few minutes detour down the steep track to your right (north) is a significant kauri grove. 

After returning to the junction, continue south until meeting junction with the Lindemann Ridge Track. A few metres south from the junction is a kauri dam site - the old bed log is all that remains of this site. 25 minutes further on is a small shelter and campsite area.

Return to the junction and follow the Ridge Track back to the carpark at Lindemann Road.  There are excellent views of the Tauranga area and offshore islands from the ridge.
