Don't remember the exact details but something along the lines of. There's a scree chute on the northern side, go down that ?30m?, then scramble sidle around the face on tussock/rock (may have been a vague ...
Good question. I would say council but there is a big issue. Not many people in that area so not a big rating base to pay for it. If it was left to the council ...
I don't think there is ever 'only one rat'

I've been from Mudflats Hut up and over to Julia Hut and been on the Campbell Range tops further south. However I have not crossed Hura Saddle or been up Hura Creek. I've a feeling ...

Will do, Not sure when I will make it back there but will keep you updated. I do intend to mark the track for the next people and ask that everybody takes a roll of ...

Hi there. A friend and I were hoping to do the Pinnacles walk in the Coromandel on Saturday, 4 April for a milestone birthday & stay the night to see the sun rise. However the ...

Launch the bright pink drone. Bound to invite target practice from any hunters lurking out there within a 3km radius. Along the ridge to Horace Walker, the ferals had mown the grass down to ground ...

Keen for any advice on the actual track condition. Starting to get more adventurous with our 5 year old, and wondering if other trampers would consider the track ok for this age? I think he'll ...
Hi, checked through some old emails and couldn't find anymore specifics for hut ownership as must have discussed this via phone calls. Your best first step is as you suggest, talking to Rob Hamilton at Glenlee Station. ...
A tramping mate (AndrewP over on www.bushwalk.com) has been producing contour maps (Aus, state by state) for use in Garmin GPS for quite some time - now he's added New Zealand North & South Island ...

Hey guys - because of the track closure, I received this reply yesterday from the Queenstown VC: "A bridge was destroyed along the Dart track (in between Chinamans Bluff and Daleys Flat hut). We are hopeful ...

Thanks @Honora. Much appreciated. How long did it take you to get through to/from Doughboy? Any options for campsites once you drop off the Tin Range or all too scrubby down there?

Thinking of doing the Three Passes route in a couple of weeks. Does anyone have an update on the snow conditions. Can you get by without crampons? I have done the route a couple of ...
Little bit of rain today in Rangiora and thunder from the Mount Thomas direction so this might be fixed
Thanks for that, Madpom. I'l lost my older paper topomap with the boundaries on, the current online topomap doesn't show it. Good to know Junction Burn hut is a possibility.
Why not get the shuttle to drop you at Wainui and then hike back towards Marahau? That's what I would do. I've done the whole track and north of Totaranui the track is fine but ...
Thanks Honora. I got the new re-opening of the valley from Andrew via the Permolat pages. Still, plan is to head up the Whitcombe and out the Tuke. I think it was asked before if ...
Waipapa Hut & Crow Hut are both pre-fabricated flyable 'big fridge' type huts, with the former actually located south of where it is shown on older maps. Both huts are used by bio-diversity teams (predominantly ...

I've visited Te Ekaou Hut via the farm track with permission, although it took two attempts. In both instances i phoned the landowner. The first time they politely declined me & informed me why, which ...

Almost exactly that. We encountered a large school group of kids playing field games just before ascending into the bush from the river flats on the way back from Carrington hut last. That's just over ...
*Are the river crossings deep (will have a 7 year old with me)* From memory all river crossings are either bridged or there was an alternative high-water track. In normal flow it is pretty easy to ...
