Egmont National Park, in Taranaki, is on the western coast of New Zealand's North Island.
Enjoy stunning views and lush native forest as you explore the park from the North Egmont roadend, just 30 minutes' drive from New Plymouth. There are several short walks in North Egmont, and the Veronica Loop Track is also popular.
For more experienced hikers, the multi-day Round the Mountain Circuit is a great challenge.
