Huntly to Ngaruawahia – Hakarimata Track @ Glen Eden Post Shop
Feb 17 @ 8:00 am

NOTE EARLY START

Grade: Difficult

Fare: Total cost per car will be approx $45 so 3- 4 passengers is ideal, minimum of 2 cars will be required for car shuttle or key swap.

Timing: 4-5 hours for shorter version down Summit Track Option : 6 hours to do the whole Hakarimata Track

Starting from Parker Road in Huntly we will head up the Hakarimata Track to the summit tower where we will get lovely views. Shortly after leaving the tower we have the option of taking Summit track or carrying on the Hakarimata. Here we can split the group if numbers allow it. Its a great tramp with lots of tree roots and only a little mud (yeah right).

Please ring the leader to let her know you are coming.

Tapora – Wellsford @ Glen Eden Post Shop
Feb 24 @ 8:30 am

Grade: Medium

At Tapora on the way to Wellsford. If coming from Auckland look for Wharehine Rd on the left after Tauhoa, not all that far before Wellsford. If you miss it, the Port Albert Rd is some kilometres further along and is the road to take if coming from Wellsford. Either way within 6 kms or so after finding Wharehine Rd, you will come to Run Rd. 5 kms down this road you will see Atiu Regional Park signposted – carry on to meet at the Atiu carpark at 10 am. Travel time is approx 45 min from Glen Eden.

Advise Dave beforehand if you will be going directly to Atiu.

Paddle & Peddle @ Fergs Kayaks
Mar 24 @ 9:45 am

No Meeting at Glen Eden
Grade: Easy

To make the most of this fabulous summer and add a little variety to the program, Peter will be leading a “paddle and peddle” day. The plan is to take our bikes to town on the train, peddle around to Orakei Bay, pick up a kayak at Fergs and paddle around into Hobson Bay and under the Orakei Road bridge and as far up towards Meadowbank as possible then continue peddling along the waterfront, returning to same way. Very easy paddling.
Bring your own kayak if you have one and meet at Orakei Bay or hire one single kayak $35 or a double kayak $30 per person.
As kayaks need to be booked in advance, please register your interest a minimum of 1 week prior.
No petrol fare, only train fare. Catch the Glen Eden train departing 8.36am or meet at Fergs Kayaks at 9.45am
