Walk around Tinakori Hill

We'll meet at the end of St. Mary's Street, which is one end of the Northern Walkway trail, and follow the trail to the Wadestown end of the hill. Then we'll walk back along the ridgeline to the views at the top, and down through Northland/Kelburn back to Glenmore road.

This is a moderate (not easy) walk.  There are some steep sections.  The trail is mostly unpaved and may be muddy in places.  The ridgeline is exposed, so bring an extra layer if the wind is up.

We should arrive just in time for the Sprig and Fern to open, which has a lovely back courtyard for relaxing and a selection of alcoholic and non (including coffees) beverages and tasty snacks.  http://www.sprigandfern.co.nz/taverns/tinakori-road-wellington.aspx

    Hi all. The walk is on. Do bring a rain coat and spare fleece jersey, a hat and gloves would be a good idea too. I think we will get wet but it does not look windy yet.

    See you at 10!

      Apologies, got up well before time, but by deciding to walk the St. Marys from my place did not realize my route would be really really steep and would not make it in good time for 10am :(

    Hi everyone. It's looking damp for tomorrow morning. If it's like today, I will proceed. If it is blowing a gale, I'm inclined to postpone to Sunday, but if so would start at 9 as I have something else on that day.

    I'll send an update by 8 AM tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

      We met to discuss November Wellywalks tonight, and are still holding off on a formal scale approach as we gauge what works for this group. At this stage I feel it is more important to specifically describe a walk because people's individual ideas of what 1-10 means may vary a lot. I expect it will be quite similar to the SWalkway Part 1 walk that we are both going on Saturday, possibly slightly steeper.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
