Karekare, Waitakere Ranges
The Comans Track re-opened 1 year ago, after major track resurfacing had been carried out, so we're going to make the most of the opportunity to get into the Waitak's again and the incredible coastal clifftop views from this track and Mercer Bay loop & Log Race Road Track in Karekare.
One of the tracks boasts the highest vertical sea cliffs in the Auckland area at 270 metres, with views to match.
We'll head to Karekare Beach and the impressive Karekare Waterfall near the start of the Taraire Track as well, that should be in full flow, so there will be many photo opportunities worth bringing your camera or camera phone out for, including along the cliff tops, whether it be sunny or overcast or showery the views are sublime!
Ahu Ahu Track is currently being re-surfaced, so we may spot how that's going. Don't think the track will be ready for Sunday, unless we're extremely lucky, then we will definitely do Ahu Ahu as well for loop variation.
There will be different group speeds as per usual of like minded, friendly people, only too happy to share knowledge and amazing experiences.
** PLEASE ensure that all of your gear is clean, poles, boots, bag etc, as always before and again afterwards and especially as we're in the Waitakere Ranges and we will be passing Kauri'd areas. With fresh, clean footwear and clothing on the bus for afterwards.
