    Karaka Track and Waiotahi Circuit, Thames, Coromandel

        When:      28 Feb 2021
        Time         8.00 AM
     

    Depart:

    •     8am The Strand, Takapuna
    •     8.15 Marewa Road, Greenlane. On road, by where it says NZ Tertiary College - by the pinky tree, opposite McDonalds driveway exit.

    * For pickups from Greenlane pickup point, please register via the site or contact the organiser.

    Climbing from the characterful former gold-mining hub of Thames, high up into Coromandel Forest Park, this loop offers both the views and history that make the area a gem.

    The track begins from Karaka Road and follows Karaka Stream through native bush for about 20 minutes, passing historic mining tunnels driven into the hillside. These tunnels are closed to the public due to the risk of collapse.

    The track crosses the stream – you can rock-hop across in low-flows, but it can become impassable during high flows and requires caution. After the crossing, the adventure begins.

    The track narrows and can become increasingly muddy, threading through a damp valley filled with Ponga ferns and Rimu, before climbing gradually beside the stream for about an hour, and then heading to the top of the valley. The track soon sidles through a large clay slip, offering the first views of the rich forest surrounds.

    This is a varied, very pretty tramp in terms of terrain between forest and spectacular views and the stream you cross on the way up.

    **Please note early departure time

    ***  Please bring plenty of water as it's bound to be hot!!!!

    ***  Bring swimwear and a light weight towel, as there are two swimming spots on the way, and one at the start!

    Please ensure you bring a headlight or good torch as you will need one walking through the hand built one kilometer tunnel and the Windows Walk.  There are Glow Worms through some of the tunnels.  

    There should be time for a refreshing swim or possibly two in the stunning Ohinemuri River and Owharoa Falls or hot drinks at the end of the tramp at the café across from the car park.

    Don't forget your torch, camera, camera phone and swimming gear and a light weight towel (not a heavy full sized bath towel).

    Kaimai Track Clearing, Kaimai Ranges

    Start: Friday 16 April : 7.00pm
    End: Sunday 18th April

    Cost: Free

    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.
