The second leg follows the eastern edge of Ngongataha Domain, where the wooden pedestrian bridge takes you over the stream and into Taui Sreet. You will then pass through the Ngongataha Railway Park before joining SH 36 for the next 4km. The terrain is pastural with some rolling hills. In most places there is a wide shoulder on the road for running or walking.
Just past the 5km mark, the road curves gently up to the junction where SH36 veers off to Tauranga. Bear right onto Hamurana Road where a long gentle downhill brings you back to the lake side. The second changeover point is dead ahead of you at the boat ramp. Job done!
