Time: 4-5 hrs
Starting at Karekare we will walk up the newly re-opened Comans Track. This cliff top track has spectacular views. Then back down to Karekare and along the Pohutukawa Glade Walk to the beach and some of the less travelled areas near the cliffs.
Time: 5 hrs aprox
Car pool from Glen Eden at 8.30am or meet leader at 9am on Maritime Terrace car park, Little Shoal Bay.
We will take some bush reserve tracks to Chelsea Sugar Mill and then more tracks out to Kauri Point before climbing up to Highbury Shops for lunch. We will return to the Bay after taking in a detour to Onepoto domain (where there may be a Mr Whippy truck waiting for us to return later) and walk up to the South Side of Tuff Crater.
Make sure your footwear is comfortable and you have adequate water and snacks.
Time: 4 hrs approx.
8.30am start from Glen Eden or meet at Creamery Road carpark, Mangere by 9.00.
We will go out to Puketutu Island for morning tea and then round to Stonefields for lunch, with a bit of exploring.
Time: 7 hrs approx.
Leaving Glen Eden at 8.30am we will drive to the carpark on the right at the bridge at Bethells Beach. Hopefully we will have decent weather! We will continue to walk the track as far as we can with the aim of reaching the end of the coastal path but we will stop and turn back when we feel we have gone far enough.
Dennis Brown from Auckland Tramping Club will be visiting us to share his travels on the Silk Road in Asia.
Dennis is a great speaker and this is a fascinating topic so do come along.
Afterwards a cuppa & chat with guests & fellow members.
Time: 5.5 hrs approx
Meet at Green Bay beach 8.30am. The tide is out (I hope) so we will walk around the coastal walkway to Blockhouse Bay, then
walk on the foreshore aiming to get to Onehunga before we turn around. The foreshore will be muddy so bring sturdy shoes and a walking pole if you have one. We can then walk back to Green Bay on the coastal pathway. We may leave a car at Lynfield Cove to save us walking back around the roads, Gilletta to Lewis Streets.
Good fitness level required, the coast footpath is up and down with steps in places.
