Matakana – Omaha return. Sunday 10th December; 8.00am departure
Members please register by 7pm Friday 8 December
This walk will be a great wind-down to Christmas with sun, surf and sand, and Santa may even pay a visit.
This 16km return trip makes use of the Matakana Cycle Trail to walk from Matakana Village to Omaha beach and back again. As we’ll be walking on a cycle path, we will be sharing this with cyclists! The track is predominantly a gravel surface through farmland and bush with a small amount of on-road walking, mostly flat but with a couple of climbs. Ceramic markers along the route feature stylised maps of the area’s topography.
We’ll have lunch at Omaha Beach, where there’s the opportunity for an end of year swim at Omaha Beach, so bring your togs.
Bring PLENTY of water, a MINIMUM of 2 litres as there will be limited options for topping up.
If time permits, we’ll call in at the Matakana Village for an ice-cream on the way home.
