Mt Pearce Ridge Walk with QEII Trust Representative Alice Shanks
The ridgeline between Pigeon Bay and Little Akaloa has expansive views in all directions. From the Summit Road climb to the remote and little known DOC Reserve on Mt Pearce, traverse through a QEII National Trust covenant on private land and across farmland to the even less well-known Goodwin Reserve. Bring your camera! – the century old tōtara logs on the ridge and wind-sculptured regenerating bush are immensely photogenic. We won't rush - there will be time to look closely at the vegetation and birds.
