From the junction the Arawaru track continues to climb south, becoming vague in places, until it reach the bushedge 100m north of the summit. There is a good cut track through the leatherleaf to to trig point at Arawaru - but it can be hard to locate the start of it where you exit the bush - nose around until you find it.
The Arawaru Summit features a trig station and views over Palmerston North to the west and the Tararua District to the east.
