Weraweraonga Road is a formed road inland from Ngutuwera, branching off the road to the Mangawhio lakes. At the end of vehicle access the road continues along to the right. Once a bridle track, it has now been bulldozed, presumably to allow access at a later time for logging operations. However regrowth of some vegetation has occurred and this is still a pleasant walk to make, the road gently climbing upwards. If the steel gate shown in the picture is chained, do not be deterred as this is public road. (See map).
Once you reach farmland, an unformed public road follows the fence line on the edge of the DoC forest to the right.

If you look at the map of the Waverley hinterland showing the areas where public have a right to be here ie public roads (paper roads) then with good navigating skills you have a variety of overnight options if you do not wish to just return to the car.
