Around Town Walking Trail, Pukekohe Sunday 18 October 2020

The trail started at the railway station, passing along Harris Street through Bledisloe Park for a lazy morning tea in Samuel Miller Reserve.

Continuing on through quiet roads with many fine new properties, the trail headed towards Pukekohe Hill but diverted to miss the steepish push to the top. We passed market garden paddocks with some original homesteads and Nehru Hall (a meeting place for the many Indian market gardeners).

The trail changed in character through large areas of not so pretty urban new housing development and then followed the very pleasant Whangapouri Creek for some distance, before stopping for lunch amongst the trees adjacent to Paerata Road and the welcome convenience of New World.

After lunch the trail continued through Ernie's Reserve and native bush to the top of Cape Hill with panoramic views. The trail concluded through urban streets back to the vans and the mandatory stop at Pokeno for you know what.

A great days walk to somewhere new, thanks to the leaders.
