    Recommendations for loop tracks - North Island

    Guys, looking for recommendations for loop / circular tramping tracks in the North Island pls.

    Preferably in the 2/3 night range. Best option would be start /end at same place, but also happy with ones where there are established transport options from end back to start point.

    Stuff like:

    Holdsworth Jumbo Loop
    Waikaremoana
    Tongariro Northern Circuit
    Viva la Howa ! R.I.P. Toby
    Black rifles matter...

    @ebf just had friends visit Waikaremoana, they were more then disappointed at the state off the huts they went to and lack of maintenance on huts and tracks. One hut had no door, ever fallen off or rip off. Huts where in a untidy state inside and no firewood etc etc.
    They were disappointed at the least and how backwards the place has gone.

    Starting at Clements Mill there are a few good options through the Kaimanawa/Kaweka especially if you don't mind doing a bit off track. Clements-Cascade-Boyd-Tussock-Oamaru (via the small hut at the head of the Tussock that I can't remember the name of)-Clements.
    Sika lodge used to offer a shuttle service to the end of the road and car minding.
    Around the Mt is great and what Tahr suggested is a cool walk. You could also include Umukarikari as the car park is not far from the Urchin carpark and an easy walk between the two.
    Taranaki/Pouakai is another option.

    There’s a few in the Ruahines to but most will involve a pick up at the other end. Longveiw down the Pohagina to the Doc base. Up to Rangi down the Oroua and out through Heritage lodge. Kelly Nights up to the tops and down to Pouranaki then down the river to Kelly Nights. Longview to Howlets down to Daphine and out the river.
