Rainbow Mountain Scenic Reserve

From the roadside on SH 5 an easy walking track leads to views over two crater lakes. (1 hour return) . From the craters there is a three hour round tramping trip to get extensive views from the top. Rainbow Mountain is of botanical and scientific interest . It has a complex mixture of plant species, some of which are rare and unique to geothermal areas. Volcanic Rainbow Mountain (Maungakakaramea, meaning 'mountain of coloured earth') has cooled over recent years.
Some places are still smouldering but the native
vegetation is regenerating.
