29 Sept Gold Creek – Ruahine FP
Another favourite, walking along this ridge in the beech forests of eastern Ruahine FP. Go to the hut down in the valley or stop at the top before returning the same way.
06 Oct Clifton Cycle
Head from River Road along the new trail beside Waimarama Road and then out to the coast or vice-versa.
13 Oct Boundary Stream
Walk right through or do the section from Shine Falls to look at the limestone formations and waterfall.
20 Oct Cycle to Mohi Bush
Up and down Maraetotara Road to the reserve overlooking the valley; check on pest control traps that we helped install some years ago.
27 Oct Ex-Kaweka Hut Site
An attractive bush-walk to where HTC’s earliest hut was sited until burnt down in 2003.
Or you can go in another direction to The Lakes or even 4100.
03 Nov Apley Road Circuit
From Awatoto to the hills around Puketapu and back along the cycleways.
10 Nov Blue Lake
Inland from Tutira Store, past Opouahi then over farmland to this interesting spot.
17 Nov Biking in Central Hawkes Bay
Start on the Waipawa to Waipukurau trail then beyond the town, maybe south, maybe west as the organizer sees fit.
24 Nov Longview Hut – Ruahine FP
We didn’t make it earlier in the year so let’s have another try for this great location in the Ruahine Range. No wind wanted.
01 Dec Crownthorpe Circuit
Cycle through lovely countryside from Pukehamoamoa – a couple of moderate hills.
08 Dec Mount Erin Ramble
A new walk up to one of the local mountain tops with great views over Hawke’s Bay.
