Whareroa Farm - East Ridge Track development

After a lot of planning and obtaining of consents, more physical on-the-ground work, including in the recent working bee, has been undertaken to clear gorse and prepare for the East Ridge Track from the Hub going right of the Dell uphill (see attached photos). A slip caused from winter rains has resulted in a small change to the planned track route. DOC has kindly agreed to assist in some of the areas of preparation. As of November 8, there was still another 50m of gorse to clear and some amounts of fencing to be removed as well as finalising of signage and some entry/exit preparations. It is hoped to finish as soon as possible and have the route open to the public. You can see where the East Ridge and the planned track of the East Ridge Track are, here: http://www.naturespace.org.nz/documents/whareroa-track-network. Stay tuned for more information.
