‘Recce’ on Rocky Peak with Suky Thompson, Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust Manager and Sam Gillooly, the new DOC Ranger

Head up from Hilltop through Montgomery Reserve, on a steep track recently improved by the Trust and DOC as part of the Te Ara Pātaka project. Pay homage to the largest tōtara tree on Banks Peninsula, hear about plans to protect it, and spot some other remarkable specimens as you climb up the rock staircase through a narrow cleft in the ramparts of Montgomery Peak. Then reconnoitre on Rocky Peak in the Peninsula’s newest reserve – another Te Ara Pātaka partnership success. Descend past more tōtara giants in the new reserve before car pooling to Hilltop Tavern for a well-earned lunch. Bring money for lunch.

Walk Length: 4 hours

Walk Difficulty: TRAMP - Track mostly unformed with prolonged up and down

Wear tramping boots or sturdy walking shoes. Bring snacks, water bottle, sunhat, sunscreen walking poles & weatherproof gear.
