Sun 3rd October Beginner Tramp #2 Easy
Anne Lawrence 357 1695

This is the second in our Beginner series. We are going to Sunrise hut in the Eastern Ruahines. The carpark is approx 2 hours drive from PN. It involves a fairly steady climb but the track is a fairly good surface. The hut offers great views (weather dependent of course!) and is a good place to have lunch. Some of us may carry on above the hut towards Armstrong Saddle. We’ll all return down the same track. Depart from Milverton Park at 7.30am.
