With summer on the way it must be time for a walk.

Where: Pukerua Bay to Paekākāriki Escarpment Track.

Meet at Pukerua Bay Train Station.

When: Sunday 27 November 2022, leaving 10:00 am

What we are in for:  With Medium grade/effort, experience this stunning walk with its rewarding views. There are some extended ascending flights of steps (required to get said view), and the track is narrow in places with steep drop-offs (required to promote adrenalin). A rough section of track leads walkers on a brief but steep bypass up and beyond a section of the original track which is being repaired. A rope helps walkers over this section.

Probably one to bypass if vertigo is an issue. Please call Ross (021 467737) if doubt exists.

Weather permitting we will set off from Pukerua Bay Railway Station at 10.00 am - there is a scheduled train departing WLG at 0914 getting to Pukerua Bay at 0950 though check for alerts as these services can change at short notice.

Parking is available at Pukerua Bay Train Station if you choose to come by car.

We will enjoy one of the cafes at Paekakariki before returning to Pukerua Bay by train (which depart every 30 mins).

RSVP no later than Friday night 25 November 2022

If coming please include your mobile number with the registration.

Also please put next of kin/phone a friend name and contact number in the comments box. We need this in the unlikely event of an incident arising.

Ensure you are prepared for changes in the weather so rain jacket and warm layers are essential. Bring water as there is none on the track.
