With Summer just around the corner it’s time to grab your friends, put on your hiking boots, slap on some sunscreen and head into the great outdoors!
We are so spoilt in Auckland to have the Waitakere and the Hunua Ranges right on our back doorstep.
The Auckland Council have great websites for the Waitakere and Hunua Ranges which allow you to select an area within the Ranges and find out all the info you could possibly need for a short stroll or something more intense. They share info on it’s location and how to get there including maps, the facilities and activities in the park, info on the tracks in that area and the history about the area. This can be very helpful when you come to writing your Report for your DoE Hillary Award as it will give you info on the tracks you have walked including track details and maps.
Here are the links to the websites:
So don’t wait any longer! Get some friends together and get hiking!
