Sun 10th (Trips) Mania Track Medium
North of Rangiwahia, Mania track heads up into the Ruahines. The lower levels pass through dense mixed beech-podocarp forest. Higher up there are awesome views down huge slip faces into the Pari Stream leading down the Pourangaki and upper Kawhatau River terraces. The plan is to climb onto the open tops of the Whanahuia Range. From there we could carry on to Rangiwahia Hut if we can arrange a car to pick us up at the Rangi carpark otherwise we will return the way we came. Leaving Milverton park at 7.30 am.
Anne Lawrence 027 450 4212
 
Sat 9th - Sun 10th (Trips) Mid-Waiohine Medium/Fit
Location yet to be confirmed (depends on ankle recovery), but I'm thinking Mid-Waiohine (Eastern Tararua) or a similar jaunt in the Eastern Ruahine.
Elly Arnst 022 682 3136
 
Sun 3rd (Trips) Iron Gates Gorge Medium/Fit
A summer favourite that could be done as a shorter Easy trip depending on participants. We follow the Iron Gates Hut track past Heritage Lodge and stop at the “Tunupo” camp site for an early lunch stop and optional swim in the Oroua River. We then head downstream for some 2-3 hours of easy river travel that is sure to get your feet wet. At the Iron Gates Gorge itself we will either swim and/or pack float through or return via the Stoat Trappers Track. Depart 7.30am.

Sat 2nd - Sun 3rd (Trips) Pourangaki Hut Medium/Fit
There are several approaches to this hut in the western Ruahines. Depending on weather and river conditions we will probably do a loop including a climb up to above the bush line to Pourangaki peak before dropping down to the hut and the next day following the river back out.

Thu 31st (Social) Beginning of Year BBQ
Start the year with us at the picnic BBQs beside the paddling pool in the Victoria Esplanade. BYO food and drink. From 6.00pm until dark.
Warren Wheeler 356 1998
 
Sun 27th (Trips) Waipawa Loop Medium
A Ruahine trip with lots of variety up past Sunrise Hut and down the north branch of the Waipawa. Hopefully the mistletoe and alpine plants will still be flowering. Enjoy the run down a scree slope and the relatively easy stream travel, but expect wet feet once we meet the main Waipawa River. Depart 7.30am
Warren Wheeler 356 1998
 
Sat 26th - Sun 27th (Trips) Totara Flats Easy
A nice introduction to tramping in the Tararua Forest Park, with a mix of uphill and downhill, metalled and muddy sections, narrow and wide valleys, forest and river flats. Plenty of time to find the best swimming holes near the large hut

Sat 19th - Mon 21st (Trips) Te Potae Stoat Trapping Medium/Fit

Janet Wilson 3294722
 
Sat 19th - Mon 21st (Trips) Tararua Southern Crossing Medium/Fit
A classic route, with fantastic views south over Wellington to the Kaik?ura ranges if we're luckywith the weather. I've arranged a key swap with a friend walking west-east, so we'll walk east-west from Waiohine Gorge to Otaki Forks over three days, staying at Alpha and Kime. Not the usual eastern end, but a shorter drive…and a shorter first day. Leaving 7am Saturday.
Chris Tuffley 359 2530
 
Sun 13th (Trips) Beehive Creek Family
This Pohangina walkway, opened in 1983, is just 30km from P.N. Our 11 year old son has walked this track every year of his life, as has our 13 year old daughter (the first time in the womb). The creek is generally ankle-deep and sandy-bottomed, making this ideal for all, including families and first-time trampers. Kids like to jump in the deeper bits, so leaving a change of clothes in the car for them is advisable. No dogs allowed. It can still be a workout for anyone who wants to walk the road section (3km, 40mins) of the loop. The walk will be followed by lunch at a picnic spot across the road from the cars. Good social tramp, and you’ll still have the afternoon free to mow the lawns. 9am start from Milverton Park.

Sat 12th - Fri 13th (Trips) Tararua Botanising Medium
If you have an interest in alpine plants, this is a trip for you. January is a great month to partake in this slow form of tramping, where one assumes a rather head down, bum up posture while observing and perhaps photographing the profusion of interesting and possibly rare native plants flowering in the alpine zone. I am assured I will be accompanied by our clubs most enthusiastic and knowledgeable amateur botanists. Location is likely to be Cattle Ridge where, given good conditions, we will try to camp up high, but if the weather dictates, we may move elsewhere, perhaps the Ruahines near Rangi Hut or Shorts Track. Please reply nice and early so I know you want to come. Departing time TBA.
