From the Papatahi hut turnoff, the Orongorongo is a broad expanse of gravel, the river often invisible in its expanse. The route downriver sticks to the gravel riverbed, crossing at least a couple of times where the river undercuts the north bank.

Whakanui Creek is the next main creek on the right, and the track junction with the Whakanui track is signposted on its western bank.
