What to bring

SADLY, NATURE HAS DEALT US A BLOW! PUKETAWA & SLIP TRACKS WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE OWING TO DAMAGE FROM THE RECENT SNOW STORMS IN THE AREA. WE WILL DEFINITELY OPEN AGAIN IN EARLY DECEMBER 2017. WHEN WE KNOW THE EXACT OPEING DATE WE’LL POST IT ON THIS SITE.

What to Bring

1.  Wear a pair of sturdy, comfortable walking shoes (runners are fine but they might get wet & muddy)
2. 
 a windproof & waterproof jacket
3.  a small day pack
4.  A bottle of water
5.   sunblock
6.   binoculars if you use them
7.  camera
8.  phone
9.  a sun hat

There is a lovely picnic site that you’ll reach about 1.5 hours walk into the Puketawa Track or 45 minutes into Slip Track.  It’s a great spot to have your lunch or a rest & a nibble, so bring something to eat!

 

 If you can do the Tongariro Crossing you can do this!
Walkers undertake the track at entirely their own risk. No camping, fires or dogs (without talking to Michélé first.)
