Leslie Karamea Track - Kahurangi National Park
The Leslie-Karamea Track is one of the region’s premier semi-wilderness experiences, situated in the middle of Kahurangi National Park. It is a 3-4 day link through the earthquake-torn Karamea Valley, between Flora car park and the Wangapeka Track; 6-9 days are needed to get from road end to road end.
The Leslie-Karamea is classified as a tramping track. It is marked but not benched, and quite rough in places. Many of the streams along the track are not bridged and flood-prone. Strong footwear, backcountry experience and a good level of fitness are required for any trip into this area.
