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
