Sunday 18 June        Waiuku              Grade 1

Waiuku Forest Walk

The drive today is about 1½ hours from Hamilton through Pukekohe to the iron sands mine main gate at Waiuku. The walk is a loop track through the Waiuku Pine Forest and is an easy, relatively flat walk on a dry sandy base. It is a nice walk no matter what the weather is doing on the day. Part of the walk is along the Waikato Riverbank.

Lunch will be overlooking the Waikato Heads. The return to the vans will be through the center of the forest back to the gate.

The walk will be about 11km long and take around 4 hours.

About us

This tramping club is based in Hamilton and run trips every second Sunday except during January, on tracks within the greater Waikato area.

We usually have minibuses to transport us so we can socialise on the way.

On long weekends we sometimes travel further afield, with overnight trips to a lodge or hut near a great tramping area somewhere within a few hours of Hamilton.

Our focus is on having an enjoyable and energetic day in the hills - we leave the high-speed gut-busting to other people. The companionship and conversations are an essential part of any tramp, but at the end of the day we also know we have had great exercise as well.

Loan gear may be available for those who are new to this sport.

Contact our New members convenor Jenny West, for more information.
