North Shore Tramping Club
Kaimai Track Clearing, Kaimai Ranges
Start: Friday 16 April : 7.00pm
End: Sunday 18th April
Come and support our Club's Kaimai Track Party with this FREE Weekend.
As part of our Club's commitment to support the Kaimai Ridgeway Trust’s initiative to maintain tracks in the Kaimai’s we have undertaken to clear the track from Aongatete Junction to Wairere Falls.
• Includes a tramp in pristine river valley and forest
• Great comradeship
• Only work as hard as you feel able
• No pressure to finish any length of the track
• Full compliment of Tools provided
• Good water supply
• Safety taken seriously
Several previous trips undertaken by members have enabled over half of the track to be cleared between Wairere Falls to the junction of the North South Track.
The track runs north from the top of the Wairere Falls to a junction near Aongatete.
We are currently clearing the section from the Aongatete – North South Track Junction to the Saddle meeting the Waierere Falls track.
Are you able to help on the next trip? The work is not difficult. All you need is some good garden gloves. The Club has a full complement of new tools to tackle the job.
It will be an ideal time because the rain has softened the ground, and enable grasses and plants can be pulled out with ease, as we have previously experienced.
As there are no huts, tents are required (available for loan from the club if required for current financial NSTC members). There is an abundance of clean water available in the streams.
When: We will travel down to the carpark at the Aongatete Road end (located at the end of Wright Rd off SH2 near Katikati), on Friday night and sleep in the bus. Saturday night we will Camp out and return Sunday afternoon.
Depart: 7:00pm, Friday 16th April’21
