Kaweka Main Ridge - NS Traverse

A north-south trip down the main divide through the Kaimanawas and Kawekas.

The east-west watershed actually runs through private land to the west of the Ngaruroro. As such this leg of my 'main divide' trip follows 'the highest range' rather than the actual watershed.

See the associated route guide (track) for details

This GPX file is the true 'main ridge' trip. The route I took dropped off to explore some new places, and is given in a separate GPX file associated with the track.

Note: This GPX file is drawn off a map, and not recorded form a GPS, so will not be completely accurate. Expect track to be accurate to within 50 meters.
