Ed Hillary Hope reserve - 20 January 2019

This was our first tramp of the year and was very well supported 27 keen Wanderers . It was our first visit to the reserve which is on the Old Mountain Road.

We started off following a vehicle track through native bush and then on to open pasture. We then had a steep climb to a disused air strip where we got a great 360 degrees view f the Raglan/Te Pahu area. The pasture land has been heavily planted in manuke and will be a great sight in a few years time.

Then we made our descent down a steep (and slippery for some) slope to the vehicle track, ate lunch, and back to the vans. Ice creams and coffee at Whatawhata put an end to a very enjoyable day.
