Te Tuhi           Sunday 1 November 2020

10 trampers signed on for this tramp. The day started overcast/possibility of a shower.

Arriving at the Te Tuhi Road end about 08:25, the group was ready and off at 08:45. The track started on the farm road and after a few electric fence crossings and styles, entered lush farmland that was undulating and steepish in parts with lots of interesting bolders along the way. The track then entered the bush across a stream, with no need to accept the held of the rope assistance. Then the big slog up the hill. Although hot work crossing the farmland, the temperature dropped as the wind increased, as we climbed higher. There was a chance for an impressive view across the Hauraki Plains into the distance. Once over the top the going was much easier and we reached the North South junction after about 21/2 hours. A short break and on along the sometimes muddy North South Track to reach the hut for a well earned lunch.

Not your usual hut this one, concrete suspended floor and some sort of concrete wall structure. 12 bunks and lots of room outside under a covered veranda. Back on the track again at about 12:45 to retrace our steps.

About 71/4  hours tramping including lunch etc. All agreed a good workout found a few unwary joints and muscles.

A great day out thanks to Ray and Grant.
