Ronaki Track zig-zags up the western slopes of Grampians to connect with Grampians Walkway on the ridge. It can be completed in either direction and the uphill direction is not particularly challenging. Combine Ronaki Track with Tawa Track and Grampians Walkway to create a 1-2 hr loop.

Access and Trail Description
The track begins on Ronaki Tce (see Access tab above) at 70 m elevation. The beginning of the track can be quite tricky to find. As Ronaki Tce and nearby streets are quite narrow parking is limited. It may be best to park next to Nelson College on Hampden St.
Ronaki track intersects Tawa Track after only 150 m. Ronaki and Tawa tracks combine as one track for another couple of hundred metres before Ronaki forks off to the left, heading uphill. Tawa Track continues south, with a sign reading “Tukaka St 40 min”. Ronaki track zig-zags up through a block of regenerating native bush for 550 m to the ridge (230 m elevation), where Grampians Walkway is met.
