2780 Mt Edgecumbe & Whakatane Walks

Weekend 18 - 19th August 2018

On Saturday morning we will drive to Kawerau, where we will climb Mount Edgecumbe/Putauaki (821 metres).  The route we will take is from the north via a moderate track through pine forest and then native bush.  On the summit there is a lovely view down to Kawerau.  While the driver returns to get the van the rest of the group will walk down a 4WD track that services the antenna and forest fire look-out, onto the eastern side of the mountain at McKee Road.  From here we travel through to Awakeri Hot Springs where we stay the night.  On Sunday we travel the short distance to Whakatane where we do several short walks around the Footprints of Toi - Ohope area, then travel back to Hamilton by late afternoon.

 Mountain climb is easy to moderate & coast walks easy. We must book the accommodation early so please book for the trip early too.
