Ronaki Track begins on Ronaki Tce 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 (220 m elevation), where it connects to Grampians Walkway.

 

You can follow Grampians Walkway to the summit and then take Tawa Track back to where you started on Ronaki Tce (this will take approx. 1 hr).
