From the top of Marsdan Valley Road, walk up the Barnicoat Walkway to the hang gliding area at the top of the hill for great views of the Nelson coastline. We will return via the ridge to Jenkins Hill and down the Involution MTB track. Should take approx. 3-4 hours.
Day 1: From Te Rou Road (Northbank Wairau) follow the track along Timms Creek then steeply up to the site of the Mt Fell hut at 1300m. This is the club's latest project so this is an opportunity to see how it is progressing. Standard hut ticket.
Day 2: Short walk over Mt Richmond to Richmond Saddle Hut with time to explore the surrounding area. Standard hut ticket.
Day 3: Walk down and out to Richmond Saddle Road.
Can be done as a crossover if enough participants with one party going each way, or may need to relocate cars.
