An old gold mining town with scenic walks and old mining remnants

A very scenic place that's great to visit as an excursion from Hamilton is Karangahake. Mining for gold started here in 1875 and continued until the late 1930s, after which mine buildings and equipment were dismantled and nature begain to reclaim the land.

The area is a popular walking, cycling, and swimming spot, particularly over summer months.
