Point of Interest – Snakes & Ladders

SnakesandLaddersThis one kilometre section of walking track that runs between the Big Redwoods and the summit was created in 2013 by the Park’s caretaker, Shaun Gilbert. Unlike Te Mata who was defeated by the impossible task set him by Hinerakau in the legend of Te Mata Peak, Shaun was not daunted by the distance and very steep sections and has succeeded in creating access to a stunning area of the Park. He has formed this entire section of track by hand with just the help of a pick and shovel.
