Woodhill Forest Walk (short version)

The shorter version of the Woodhill walk done last week, this week the route will cover approximately 12km and take about 4 hours.

From Auckland City – At the end of the North-Western motorway continue north on State Highway 16 heading towards Helensville. Pass through Kumeu and Waimauku. The entrance to Woodhill Forest is clearly marked 6km from the Muriwai turnoff at Waimauku. Turn left into Restall Road. After 1.5 km turn right into Eastern Boundary Road and park at the picnic area on the right 1 km down Eastern Boundary Road. The track starts opposite the carpark.

Meeting Point: Woodhill Forest carpark (Boundary Road) or carpool from Westgate Shopping Centre (departure at 9.00am)
Distance: Approximately 12km
Duration: 4 hours depending on walking pace and duration of breaks
Difficulty: A relatively easy walk on a good track. Good walking fitness is required as we will walk at a reasonable pace.
What to wear and bring: Good walking shoes, water, snacks/lunch, warm jumper and wet weather gear

Group members have indicated that they like to walk in a smaller group with a preferred maximum of 25. Therefore the limit on our walks will remain at 25. Thank you for your understanding :-)

We will leave on time in fairness to the whole group.

    Hi Bruce is it worth going ahead with only 5 attending and the threatened weather?

    August 16, 2013

    • Elizabeth

      Hi Raewyn. I'll leave it to Bruce to comment on the weather but the walk for tomorrow still has 17 attending, so unless Bruce does decide that the weather is too bad we will still be going. This walk that you have commented on is the shorter version and has just opened for rsvp's, hence the lower numbers :-)
