Name Changes made and Hakarimata Walkway on this Weekend..- At Huntly- Waikato - Plus Hot Pools after at Miranda- Are you coming ?

Hi All.

There's still spaces left for this Hike and Hot Pools after option for those that wish which is a 4 hour return loop through an area of bush near the Waikato River by Huntly which is about an hours drive south of the CBD to get too. From there after the hike, its about another hour to get to the Hot Pools at Miranda.

Some New Changes  you'll notice coming up - Including a revised new look to Feet First Events and how they are run to cater for all levels of fitness  is going to be slowly made public.

- Guests or friends of yours are now welcome to attend on this Hike and others.

- We'll have ' suggested gear lists' available for you to read in the Pages Sections on this site, but I will no longer being doing on the spot checks. Its going to be up to you what you carry, and need to make your day fun and enjoyable.

- If you wish to wear denim jeans on the hike or come in gumboots, that's okay with me !

- The emphasis on our events being mostly easy , and a truly guided experience by me and others that lead will be changing too.

- Each month  we'll do some smaller faster paced hikes, stopping less with more emphasis on tramping and less on chit chat etc about trees or birds etc.

- For those that wish those faster paced hikes will be led by Mike, Andrew and Nic or Frank. More on these soon on the website.

- I've also changed the name of our Meet Up Group to *  Feet First - Hiking and Outdoor Adventures in Auckland*....

This to reflect some of the above  pending changes that will be happening over the next few months in time for summer and our busy season and what existing members want..

- Remember Daylight Savings starts end of September.


For more details, for this Saturday's Hike with an afternoon start....See the full listing:


In the meantime, if you have any more ideas that you think could improve the way Feet First operates in anyway or have a gripe that needs airing....please let me or anyone in The Leadership soon.

Our job as leaders is to help you have a good day out in the wilderness.

Thanks .

Have a great evening.


Kind Regards - Stephen F.
