The Punter is a great challenge for a beginner trail runner/walker. An out-and-back route, it starts with a small section of graded trail and boardwalk through the Mangakara Nature Walk. A few sets of steps later, you're on the gradual incline up the Ruapane Link track to the foot of Ruapane, here it steepens considerably for a final push to Ruapane trig - good news is once you've made it to the top, it's all downhill back to the start line!

SUITABLE FOR: Youth, beginner runner/walkers who would like a challenge but are happy to take their time
