Silica Rapids is a loop track through mountain beech and subalpine shrubland in the Tongariro National Park. Starting at the Whakapapa Village Information Centre, you can weave your way along a stream to the creamy Silica Rapids terraces. Subalpine plants, amid a mixture of swamp and tussock country, feature around the track as it returns to the Bruce Road 2.5 km above the starting point.

This little gem is just part of the Silica Rapids
