Mt Stormy is an awesome day walk to the summit of the mountain up through several different kinds of rain forest and into the alpine zone. The fantastic view of the West Coast and out over the Kahurangi National Park from the summit is fair reward for the climb. Allow 8 hours to return to trailhead. The track is challenging and a high level of fitness is recommended. Permission from the farmer to cross his land at the beginning of the track is advised (ask your friendly driver for assistance).

The Karamea Gorge Track follows the Karamea River upstream to Greys Hut, a small bush shelter with a couple of bunks and a fireplace in a clearing beside the river. The track is no longer maintained by the Department of Conservation and it involves a lot of rock hopping, so a high level of fitness is recommended…as is plenty of sandfly repellant. Karamea River offers excellent trout fishing for keen anglers.
