Magnificent Mt Bradley with Rod Donald Trust Manager Suky Thompson.
Walk up beautiful Kaituna Valley to the Sign of the Packhorse Hut for morning tea at one of Harry Ell’s “rest houses” on his visionary recreational route to Akaroa. Then make the big slog up the back of Mt Bradley and take a little known track to the summit for magnificent views. Celebrate how the Trust is fostering Harry Ell’s 100 year vision. If time permits we will make a side trip to a new extension to the Sign of the Packhorse Scenic Reserve, recently acquired by Rod Donald Trust, to further this. Return to Kaituna suitably stonkered after a great day.
