Walk 26 - Kids Adventure at Sugarloaf with Marie Gray, Summit Road Society
This kids adventure will follow a loop track around Te Heru o Kahukura (Sugarloaf). Kids will have a checklist of tasks and activities to complete along the way. We will start at the Bowenvale carpark and follow Cedrics Track through tussock grasslands. This route offers panoramic views of the Alps and the city. There will be an ice-cream break at the Sign of the Kiwi before returning to the carpark via Mitchells Track on the Lyttelton side. Journey through native bush before emerging onto a rocky spur with amazing views of the harbour.
This area is part of Te Kākahu Kahukura, a landscape scale restoration project that aims to create a 1000ha biodiversity hub on the southern Port Hills, working in collaboration with landowners, residents, organisations and agencies to protect and connect existing bush and restoration plantings.
The 2.5km return track is suitable for most children. The terrain is undulating and there is plenty of variety. As we are focused on making the walk fun for the kids, we will take our time, offer plenty of encouragement and stop for breaks and activities as we go. Make sure you pop in some money for an ice-cream!
Children need to be accompanied by an adult with a maximum of 5 children per adult.
Note this walk will only be run at Covid-19 Alert Level 1.
