Hinewai’s Pikimai Circuit with Reserve Manager Dr. Hugh Wilson and deputy Paul Newport.
The Pikimai Circuit is a new route in the upper Stoney Bay Valley of Hinewai Reserve, taking in a range of vegetation from snow tussock shrublands through regenerating native forests and magnificent old-growth red beech forest, with stunning views to enjoy along the way. You will walk along the stunning Stony Bay skyline ridge to start, and then descend down the new track into the forest with a return climb back up through some of the grandest forest on Banks Peninsula to the Stony Bay Saddle, guided by its staunchest guardians and botanical experts.
