NEW DATE : Bush Hill Day Hike- Richardson Track sunday 4 , 9am-6pm

Hi ladies, 

This is now scheduled for this SUNDAY!  :) 

i am rescheduling this one, hoping to gather a team this time !! :-) 


How about joining me for a whole day in the nature? Here are details of this walk:
Richardson Track (1h drive north of Chch)
Time: 6 hr return - moderate to steep hike


Starting at the Glentui picnic area, this moderate to steep track climbs first through tawhai forest and then through tussock grasslands and Dracophyllum scrub on the upper slopes of Mt Richardson.
From here it is possible to continue on Bypass Track to form a loop back to the Glentui picnic area, or down Blowhard Track to come out on Maori Reserve Road.

A good track for people with moderate fitness.
Getting there: Start this track at the end of Glentui Bush Road.

Depart Chch Richmond 9am - Return 6pm - Bring your picnic, walking stick, hat, sunscreen 1L of water at least - good walking shoes required

    Hey guys, just arrived in Christchurch a couple of days ago and haven't got transport. Is anyone able to please give me a lift from the inner city, say, from Church Corner or Avonhead? If so, please let me know on 0211557297. Many thanks

      Hi Christine. Thank you for your interest in this walk. This hike is not at beginner level. I would recommend you test your endurance first on a track like Mt Herbert: 2.5h return track (port hills walk in Chch before heading for a full day up /down hill. However if you are confident in your capacity to walk up hills for 3h and then down hills for 2h then let me know :)

      Hi Nath, merci beaucoup for the prompt reply. Yes, I am a confident hiker as I've been a member of the Auckland Hiking Group for a few years and have always been into fitness :)

    Hello! Just confirming that this walk has been changed to Sunday? I havent done much fitness in quite a while.... should i be worried? Is it a return walk or is there transport the other end? (I havent been in chch long so I don't know these tracks).

      Hi Jess, I am just checking if Donna is motivated to do it on Sunday. Re-fitness level, it is hard to give advice as I do not know you. You need to be comfortable about the idea of waling for 5-6h including 3h of uphills without collapsing ;p
