Ridge Road /Oroua Farm Walk
Experience a walk in David and Gaewyn Grant’s farm situated high up between the valleys of the Oroua and Pohangina Rivers
Be greeted by David on arrival and then David led you over 13 km of memorable countryside where you will experience wonderful views over the valleys, great social interaction within the group.
The walk is over hill country farmland with magnificent views up the Oroua Valley to Ruapehu and the Ruahines. Drop down to the picturesque Oroua River for lunch and then head upstream and follow a side gully back through reverting bush back to the start.
Not a long day, say four hours on the trot, and not too difficult but a bit of scrambling here and there.
You will travel by bus from Palmerston North. This walk is limited to 28 people, so get in quick.
The bus will stop at the Feilding & District Information Centre at the Feilding Railway Station to pick up Feilding walkers at 8.20am. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number and walk, if you wish to be picked up there, after you have made your booking.
