Camped beside Lake Kaurapataka which was sweet. Took longer than expected to get to hot pools probably around 4.5+hrz. Using the swingbridge at Otira river would add another 2hrz on to this. Track is good for the most part although the path leading off to the hot pools is completely overgrown so we ended following the river up. Pools were great around 4-5 of varying temps, you can camp here as well and there is a shovel if you need to dig out the pools.
