Airport Perimeter Easy

An easy leg stretch on the flat, this walk starts at the carpark on the left before the airport, and circles the airport itself, also skirting the golf course, before ending up back at the carpark.

Comfortable walking footwear and a wind jacket will make this a pleasant outing for all.

Please text or contact Lynette before 9:30am on the day if you would like to join us. 021 214 0135.

We will be meeting at 10am at the carpark on the left as you approach the airport itself. Look out for arm-waving club members, or just text if you are having trouble finding us.

Cedar Flats & Hot Springs Medium

Email: newsletter@maxnet.co.nz or Phone 546 8060

Queen's Birthday Weekend | HOT POOL HEAVEN...

Sat:
Drive to Hokitika (4.5 hrs) walk 4 hrs up Toaroha River to huts at Cedar Flats (14 bunks). May need tents (but only cos the leader apparently snores.)

DOC: "The track initially follows an old logging-tram line and follows the river bed. A benched track climbs steadily above the Toaroha Canyon, descending gradually to the lower end of Cedar Flat where a short rock hop and track leads to the Cedar Flat Bridge which is crossed to the huts."


Sun: Optional trips to bag bivvie on Adventure Ridge or Yeats Ridge Hut nearby. (6km round trips). Compulsory soak in Wren Creek springs. Bring a book or games. Mandatory chocolate gifts for leader.

Mon: Waddle back to cars; drive home refreshed.

4 June

Rare chance to walk around Pepin Island. This is a Fundraiser for the Hira Fire Brigade so there is a $10pp donation.
