Walkers attempting the Tongariro Alpine Crossing need to watch out for washed out track after recent heavy rain.

The popular walking track was damaged by heavy rain overnight and although it remains open, walkers are asked to be cautious.

The Department of Conservation says track in the vicinity of Mangatepopo and Soda Springs has been washed out, but is still passable by following track markers.
