Karangahake Gorge, Northern Kaimai Ranges

  • 6 Oct 2019

  • The Strand, Takapuna
Join us tramping a particularly spectacular gorge that runs between Coromandel and the Kaimai Ranges.  This is a favourite area for the Club.  You will see a huge amount of gold-mining history, including the historic old machinery now rusting away.  We will have di at Karangahake Gorge. Options for shorter, medium and fast groups, including for some groups going up and over 544 metre Mt Karangahake, with extensive views back down to the gorge.

Please ensure you bring a headlight or good torch as you will need one walking through the one kilometer tunnel.  There are Glow Worms through some of the tunnels as well.  

There may be time for hot drinks at the end of the tramp at the café across from the car park.

(Bring a towel and swimwear as we should have time for a refreshing swim in one of the stunning rivers for an early spring swim in the beautiful river).
