A special walk up a secret track
Take a guided walk up Kaitoke Regional Park’s best-kept secret – the Norbetts Creek tramping track – on Sunday 1 April.
The walk begins with a tramp up beech forest onto an open ridge where – weather allowing – you’ll get views of Kaitoke Basin, Wellington Harbour and the inland Kaikoura ranges.
“You definitely need a good level of fitness for this walk – it’s steep and sustained with at least an hour of uphill walking at the beginning. But on a good day, the views are magnificent,” says Greater Wellington’s Kaitoke Regional Park Ranger Steve Edwards.
Steve says that although the track is very old, it has only been recently marked – before that it was only known to tramping clubs. “The guided walk is a perfect introduction – even though it’s a bit of a challenge, everybody who takes part says it’s well worth the effort.”
This event is free and there are spot prizes.
