What are We Going to Do?
Experience views of the entire city, Wellington Harbour, the Rimutaka and Tararua ranges, Porirua Basin, Kaikoura ranges and the Tasman Sea. On a clear day you can see the snow-capped Mount Tapuaenuku 2885m on the South Island. We start walking from Simla Crescent car park in Khandallah and end at Karori Park.
With a combination of farm roads, single track, and open grass areas, there is plenty of variety along this relatively long track.
Longish and exposed walk involving some hill climbing; you need to have a reasonable level of fitness
Duration: 5 hrs of hiking (11km) + lunch/stops
Bring: sturdy footwear, usual daywalking supplies (sun protection, lunch, water, extra clothing for cold and/or rainy conditions) plus money and/or bus/train passes for transport.
How to get there: There's a train station at Simla Crescent.
For those who take their car (as the walk finishes in Karori Park) we will be able to take 3 people back to Simla Crescent after the walk to collect their cars.
RSVPs and Cancellation: We'll check the weather forecast by 8 AM on the day. If there are any changes, including cancellation, we'll email attendees at that time.
