Walk 24 - Okuti Valley – ‘On & Off the Beaten Track’ with Neil Brown
Get off the beaten track in Okuti Valley with local resident Neil Brown. Starting at Saddle Hill Reserve on the ridgeline between Wainui and Little River, you will enjoy stunning views of the Akaroa Harbour, the Southern Alps and the unique landforms of Te Waihora and Kaitorete Spit. From here you will journey down to Okuti Valley on a variety of farm tracks and paths, diverting through some different private properties as you go.
A carpool to the top at the start will mean this is mostly a downhill stroll.
Duration: 4 hours. Walk length 7km, mostly downhill
