Crossover walk with one party starting from Duncan Bay (6 hrs) in the north and the other from Kaiuma Bay (4 1/2 hrs) in the south, and meeting at Nydia Bay for the night. Accommodation is at the DoC Nydia Bay Lodge ($18 per night).

This 27km track crosses the Kaiuma and Nydia Saddles and follows the sheltered shoreline of historic Nydia Bay. Formed by linking old bridle paths, it meanders through a variety of forests, some scrubland and farmland.
