The Windows Walk, Karangahake Gorge
Opened in 2006 The Windows Walk is easily one of the most spectacular walks in the North Island. Windows blasted through the gold mining tunnels providing provide stunning a bird’s eye views into the Waitewheta River. While it could be walked in 30 minutes, visitors should allow a couple of hours to fully explore and experience everything the extended loop walk has to offer.
You can take a recommended side-trip to the remains of the underground Woodstock Pumphouse. Remains of the beam engine and other machinery can be seen inside, as well as the rafters supporting the ceiling. Glow-worms are also visible. A good torch is essential for viewing this unique piece of mining heritage.
