ON THE TRACK
Depending on numbers, we will have parties for shorter, medium and longer distances.
Expect to be out for a full day, and to tramp on a variety of uneven terrains, which may be wet, slippery or steep.
Te Urewera National Park
20 to 23 October 2017
This weekend tramp is to cater for both those wanting a great challenge on the one hand, and for those wanting some good tramping, but returning to a great warm hut in a terrific lakeside location for the night.
Te Urewera National Park has such a different forest vegetation to visit compared to the northern ones we most often tramp in. Huge beech trees everywhere, covered in moss at the misty higher elevations. Monster fuschia trees with their scaly bark and tiny delicate flowers. And so much more.
See here for details.
Peach Cove, Whangarei Heads
27 - 29 January 2018
Depart Saturday morning. Drop off at Ocean Beach and follow Te Whara Track along the ridge, and then drop down to Peach Cove.
Sunday will be spent in the area, swimming and snorkelling, and maybe climbing Mt Lion.
Monday, follow the Peach Cove track back to the transport. Then either walk out to Busby Head, and / or climb to top of Mt Manaia for more views of the area.
