About us

This tramping club is based in Hamilton and run trips every second Sunday except during January, on tracks within the greater Waikato area.

We usually have minibuses to transport us so we can socialise on the way.

On long weekends we sometimes travel further afield, with overnight trips to a lodge or hut near a great tramping area somewhere within a few hours of Hamilton.

Our focus is on having an enjoyable and energetic day in the hills - we leave the high-speed gut-busting to other people. The companionship and conversations are an essential part of any tramp, but at the end of the day we also know we have had great exercise as well.

Loan gear may be available for those who are new to this sport.

Contact our New members convenor Jenny West, for more information.
