Tarawera Outlet to Humphries Bay Walking Track begins at the Tarawera Outlet swingbridge. Cross the bridge and take the left hand track at the junction. The track passes a jetty a short distance from the Outlet and progresses westward.
Views of the lake become less frequent as the Tarawera Outlet to Humphries Bay Walking Track climbs inland. The track descends into Humphries Bay - a pleasant picnic and overnight camping area.
Trampers can then take the Eastern Okataina Walkway northwards to access Otangimoana Bay on Lake Okataina (approximately 20 minutes one way) or onwards to complete the Walkway at the Okataina carpark (Tauranganui Bay - a further 2 hours 40 minutes walk).
