Sat 16th December - Sun 17th December Short Knights Easy-Medium
Warren Wheeler 06 356 1998

Celebrate the longest day (almost) by camping out on the Toka tops in the western Ruahines. Up Shorts Track and along the ridge to Toka for dinner and sunset. Return via Knights Track after sunrise and breakfast. Depart Milverton Park at 2pm on Saturday.
Sat 16th December - Sun 17th December Kawhatau-McKinnon Hut Medium-Fit
Roy Rolston 0274 767 188

A destination that is difficult to get to because of access issues, we will take on the approx 2 hour river route firstly to Kawhatau Base and up a steep ridge to McKinnon Hut to stay Saturday night returning back down same way or via Crow Hut and the river on Sunday. Ideally leave Friday arvo staying Kawhatau the night leaving full day Saturday to get to McKinnon. Some of the track is said to be somewhat overgrown so the tramp will be a bit of a look see and perhaps we could take on some basic track clearing as we go. Contact Roy a week out if possible to work out a plan.

Sat 10th February - Sat 10th February Twilight Walk E
Verity Elder 021 260 1885

We so often tramp during the day, but the bush can be just as enjoyable at Twilight. The twin version to the Moonlight walk last October, this easy trip begins at the Ashurst end of Te Apiti and follows the Gorge track to Centennial Lookout (option to return via the same track or do a two car key swap with a second group walking from the other end). Bring super instead of lunch, and a torch just in case. Depart Milverton carpark 4.30pm.
