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.
Duration: 6 hours, climbs 220m, length 10km.
TRAMP - Track mostly unformed with prolonged up and down.
Wear tramping boots or sturdy walking shoes. Bring lunch, snacks, water bottle, sunhat, sunscreen, weatherproof gear and hand sanitiser.
Covid 19 - All participants are required to carry their own hand sanitiser. If at Alert Level 2 please bring your own face mask to wear in any instance where appropriate social distancing may not be easily maintained (car pools etc). The Festival will be cancelled at Alert Level 3 & 4 and you will be issued a refund.
