There are a few tracks that are due to re-open after extensive dry foot, Kauri Dieback track re-surfacing.
So we are hoping that these tracks will be ready, otherwise we will place another trip will be put in place.
The views around this area of the Waitak's are stunning, so don't forget your phone camera, or camera.
There are usually plenty of rare native birds in the area. Hopefully we will see some of them.
Ministry of Health Covid-19 Guidelines:
As the Waitakere Ranges tracks are usually a good workout, PLEASE ensure you have PLENTY of WATER with you!!!
Very important, PLEASE ensure all your gear is clean, as Omanawanui is a Kauri'd area and as always ensure you thoroughly clean your gear afterwards. Bring clean footwear for bus trip back and bag for dirty footwear.
All groups will tramp 5 hours plus, there will be some very steep hills, although nothing over 300 metres, but there a good number of them and there are no options for short cuts once on the track. Terrain maybe also slippery and will be uneven and may have a lot of flights of steps. A really good workout for all!
