Rapanui Bush; Neil MacBeth. Start: Junction with the Captain Thomas Track or Scarborough Bluffs Track.

Finish: Godley Head Rd, Evans Pass.

Time: 5 minutes one way.

Dogs: Must be kept on a leash.


Rapanui Bush is a small pocket of bush at the head of the valley and a pleasant and interesting contrast from the open terrain that dominates these slopes. The track is a short but vital link enabling you to connect the Captain Thomas Track to Scarborough Bluffs Track or pop up to Evans Pass to meet the Crater Rim Walkway.
