Meet either at Glen Eden at 8.30am (we will train into town) or outside Britomart Station at 0925. We will walk initially to Gladstone Rd and past the Parnell Rose Gardens, then St Stephens Ave (John Key might invite us in for coffee!), Brighton Rd and the Ayr St Reserve, then along Shore Rd Reserve to Portland Rd. It’s all uphill from here, Portland Rd and to the top of Mt Hobson for lunch. After lunch, Market Rd, Mt St.John, Cornwall Park Ave through to Cornwall Park and down to Ellerslie via the One Tree Hill streets. At Ellerslie, there will be time for a “coffee break”, before returning to Britomart by train (could be electric if from Onehunga) or by bus. A pensioner’s delight as you could use the Gold Card all day! Walking will be 4-5 hours.
