Appreciate for yourself the newest track in the Kaimai Range.  After crossing the Waiorongomai Stream, ascend 660m via the Pylon Peak Track past mining relics and through some delightful bush and out onto the top of the Kaimai Range at Pylon Peak.  Continue along the spectacular Kaimai Ridgeway to the head of the valley, and return to the carpark via the historic mining tracks in the Waiorongomai valley.  Good fitness required for the uphill.
