About

Come join us on a walk and do the Rakaia Gorge Walking Track

Leave 37 Edmond St at 11 am (start coming from 10:30 am) or meet at the car park at Rakaia Gorge at 12.15 pm.

Approximately 12km

Our goal is to do some shorter walks normally the week before our bigger walks that happen during the year, these are designed for the beginners so no excuses!!

Bring: Bring plenty of water, snacks, and layers of clothing as it can be cool under the canopy.

TRANSPORTATION

What we normally do as we meet at James and Danny Place in the City and have a coffee and a bit of a natter then we organise the cars, both James and I can take about 10 people between us! It is a good idea to text Danny telling him you will need transport (021 961 652)

COST

If you could just give your driver $10 dollars (per person) this is for the return ride and helps keep it affordable for all.

So you can start coming from 10:30 am as that is when the coffee machine is on!

We will need to get away no later than 11:00 am

Message us or text Danny on 021 961 652 if you would like further details :-)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARTICIPATION

Essential items to carry:

- Water (note that on hot days one bottle is NOT enough)
- Food
- Warm clothing (even on hot days)
- Sun hat and sunscreen
- Rain jacket
- Strong and suitable footwear (trainers may be suitable on some walks but are often not suitable on mountain walks)

Anyone who does not come with the essential items listed above may be excluded from joining us that day. Thank you for understanding that this is for the safety of all participants.

Although we encourage anyone to join in and beginners are certainly welcome, please be aware of the fitness level some walks require. If the word 'Mt' is in the title its up a mountain and may not be a good starting walk for beginners or people with lower fitness levels. If in doubt start with one of our easier walks and work your way up.
