An 8 hour, hard track that climbs the central ridge north towards Tataweka.
The Burrill Track was formed in the early 1970’s for mining prospecting access for copper. It is named after the late Max Burrill, who farmed some of the northern parts of Aotea. This track begins at Mabey Rd, climbing steeply through the regenerating forest of Te Paparahi to the central ridge. It then follows the ridge north to Tataweka trig and Tataweka hut.
Tataweka hut has 6 bunks and heating, there is no water on the track so you will need to bring your own. The track is not regularly maintained, and is indistinct in some places and is for fit trampers only. You return the same way you came.
