  • (A)                     Kaimai Track Clearing Party

Come and support our Clubs Kaimai Track Clearing Party with this FREE Weekend.

As part of our Clubs 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 complement of quality tools provided
  • Good water supply
  • Safety taken seriously

Several previous trips undertaken by members have enabled most of the track to be cleared between the top of the Wairere Falls to the junction of the North South Track near Aongatete.

The severe weather during 2023 left an area of windfall damage covering about 500 metres near the saddle, on the Wairere Falls side of the track .

We will travel down to the Wairere Falls Carpark located at the end of Goodwin Road, off  Te Aroha-Okauia Rd and tramp up the Wairere Falls track to an idyllic camp site ~1 1/2 hours from the top of Wairere Falls, just below the saddle where we will start track clearing.  

Are you able to help on this trip?  The work is not difficult.  All you need is some good garden gloves.  The Club has a full complement of tools to tackle the job. 

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 nearby streams.

Depart:  8am Saturday 20th  April’24.
