Mount Taranaki (formerly also called Mount Egmont) is a stratovolcano on the southwest coast of the North Island, near New Plymouth.
This volcano is still active, although the last eruption occurred around 170 years ago.
There is a park around the volcano with the same name, with many trails. The photos below were taken along one of the trails on the mountain foothills.
