Egmont National Park

The Egmont National Park originates from the beautiful Mount Taranaki, a volcano that has been standing for approximately 120,000 years on the west coast of the North Island. The Mountain has a rich history originating from Maori legend. It last erupted in 1775, and has since been labelled dormant by volcanologists. In 1881 the land was formally protected and its slopes (within a 9.6km radius of the summit) were made a forest reserve.

The growth of huts, tracks and roads has made Mt Taranaki accessible to climb, and it is often referred to as New Zealand’s ‘most climbed mountain’ due to the achievability of the climb providing non-mountaineers opportunity to challenge themselves during the summer period.

Egmont National Park is home to a network of trails and tracks from a 15 minute stroll along the Kamahi Track to the epic three day Pouakai Circuit, there’s something to suit everyone. Dawson’s Falls and Wilkies Pools are some of the most popular trails featuring eroded rock pools and beautiful, gentle waterfalls.

Throughout the lower trails Kamahi trees and lush forestry make a gorgeous setting, and higher up the volcano sub alpine shrubs and herb fields can be found above the snow line. A vast amount of the park is covered in rainforest due to the area’s high rainfall and mild coastal climate. Plan your next journey in Egmont National Park here.
