Lipsey Track

The Lipsey Track starts above the Water Treatment Plan at the end of Miro Street.

The start of the track is fairly steep with several steps to climb.  After a while the track starts to level out and follows the contour over the top of a waterfall.  After the waterfall the track enters native forest again and joins up with the Horseman’s Track.
At the junction with the Horseman’s Track, walkers have the choice of turning downhill and walking to Te Aroha Domain or the more adventurous may want to turn uphill, taking an alternative route to join the Te Aroha Mountain Track above Bald Spur & Whakapipi Lookout.

The Lipsey Track is maintained by the Te Aroha & District Tramping Club.
