This part of the journey also follows the ridge line. Here gorse and mānuka are prolific, sheltering shrubs and trees that will one day shade the way. A side walk leads to a lookout just before the descent to Te Mahia Saddle begins.
At Mistletoe Bay there are cabins and campsites. To book, contact Mistletoe Bay Eco Village (see the sections on accommodation/camping, and commercial operators above). There is also private accommodation at Te Mahia Bay.
