Mountain to Sea Walk – March 2018

March 4th, 2018

On Saturday the 10th of March, STEPS will be walking, for the first time, the first stage of the Meola Waititiko Mountain to Sea Walk, from Mt Albert Owairaka to Kerr Taylor Reserve.

Come and join us! Its a chance to learn about the headwaters and some geography of Meola Waititiko, while stretching your legs in good company.   Kids welcome, so bring the whole family.

Details of the walk can be found here: http://www.meolacreek.org.nz/meola-waititiko-mountain-to-sea-walk/ .  We are only walking the first section, which is just under 3km, and we will be taking our time.

Meet at 10am at the trig station on the highest point of Mt Albert Owairaka, on Saturday 10th March, and finish in Kerr Taylor reserve, for a cold drink.

For those driving or biking to the start, there will be cars at the end to shuttle walkers back to their cars or bikes.

If weather looks poor, see https://www.meolacreek.org.nz/ on the day at 8am to check for cancellation.

We hope to see you there!
