Feel like a nice walk up from Coppermine Creek track to see the Wharite transmitter tower? Sure, it starts off steep but soon eases off and the views just keep on getting better.

Best weather day trip or camp out overnight on the tops for the sunset and sunrise. Day trip will depart Milverton Park at 7.30am. Overnight trip would start after lunch on Saturday. A must-do pre-Xmas work-out to celebrate the longest day (almost). This western Ruahine loop takes us up Shorts Track and along the tussock tops to Toka high point and then down Knights Track. Great views and lots of alpine plants should be flowering.
