KAREKARE, WAITAKERE RANGES
The Comans Track re-opened 1 year ago & half of Ahu Ahu Track only re-opened 2 months 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!   

There will be different group speeds as per usual of like minded, friendly people, only too happy to share knowledge, amazing adventures and tramping experiences.
