North Shore Tramping Club
From the carpark we walk up through some mature pines to the edge of the iron sand mine at Waikato North Head, with views of Waikato River entrance and Port Waikato. We then drop down a very steep sand dune to the Waikato River mouth. After following the beach for a kilometre, we re-enter the forest and are soon faced with a stiff climb to the northern high point, then an easy grade through mature bush and back to the bus.
A varied and interesting group walk, suitable for trampers of moderate fitness.
(PLEASE, bring a change of clean footwear to leave on the bus to change into afterwards so you are not possibly transferring any Kauri Dieback and to keep our bus clean. Please ensure all of your gear is cleaned afterward).
Please bring your own hand sanitiser just in case we need to stop somewhere along the way.
Please if you are unwell, cold or flu type symptoms, stay away.
** Non-members: Please phone the organiser to check suitability of the tramp.
