North Shore Tramping Club
Clifton Peninsula and Mangemangeroa Reserve
This trip replaces the Motuihe Island tramp which has been cancelled due to wharf closure.
Members, please register online by 7pm Friday 24th March.
Non-members please phone the organiser AFTER HOURS to assess your suitability for the tramp.
Today we will explore two tracks in East Auckland. The first track, Clifton Peninsula Loop (10.3 km), is an easy walk outside of Whitford with beautiful water views, huge trees, green pastures and majestic houses. We will find a nice lunch spot close to the end of the track before travelling to Mangemangeroa Reserve to continue with our afternoon walk down to Shelly Park (9.3 km return). An extremely pretty coastal track, with a couple of gentle hills, that winds its way through well-established native foreshore forest and along the sands with many native sea birds foraging as the tide ebbs. Trail or running shoes (if you don't mind them getting a bit dirty) will be fine.
Depart: 9.00 am, The Strand, Takapuna
