Requested by popular demand to be repeated due to the difficult conditions encountered in August.

Meet at Horoeka Park, Horoeka Street, Stokes Valley at 9.30am.

Experience stunningly beautiful bush as you walk up hill and down.

Enjoy the vistas of valley and harbour from the ECNZ Rd on top.

Duration expected to be 2.25 to 3 hours, depending on final route.  This is a loop track.

Bring something for morning tea at the top. If it is sunny and warm we will stop briefly.

Following the walk we will have coffee and other goodies at the Turmeric Cafe in Stokes Valley.

Boots or stout shoes are definitely recommended for this walk,  You may also like to bring a pole.  I suggest 1 is enough, 2 will prevent you using the available trees for assistance.  There is a steep section for about 20 to 30 minutes that will challenge you.  Good training for those doing Paparoa in October so load up your pack, strap on your boots and start walking.

See attached document for more details.

For those that would like a gentler shorter route Howard Tong will lead a walk around the Horoeka Loop.  It is a walk of about 2 kms through some lovely bush with interesting inhabitants that could be spin offs from Hobbiton.  This walk will start at 10.30am and also finish with coffee at the same cafe.  Please put "Howards walk" in the comments box if you are planning to do this.
