Te Ara Pātaka Branch Line from Little River Rail Trail with Craig Mason and Suky Thompson
Help us explore a potential new route connecting the Rail Trail from its current terminus at Little River to Te Ara Pātaka - the skyline track along the tops. We’ll do it the easy way round with a car pool shuttle to the top and then walk the potential route from the ridgeline down to Little River on a mix of tracks and some cross-country adventuring. Expect spectacular scenery, new territory and some moderate descents, plus plenty of speculation and day dreaming on the possibilities. We’ll enjoy a well earned coffee at the end before collecting the cars from the top.
Duration: 6-7 hrs including carpool. Length 13kms. Walk descends 700m.
