Te Uku Windfarm 3 July 2022

A van and a car with 17 trampers aboard left Hamilton and headed towards Raglan on a cold damp morning, stopping at the Bridal Veil Falls carpark for a toilet stop, and then onto the quarry carpark, the start of the trail. Here we split into 2 groups, a G1 & G2.

There were 7 in the G2 group who took off at a cracking pace so they could get to the top for lunch and back to the vehicles so the G1s would not have to wait very long. The first part of the walk was on the gravel service road, then half way up we went through a gate onto a farm track and paddocks to the furtherest spot we were allowed to go, standing amongst the whishing generator blades like The Man From La Mancha. It started showering and the wind got up so we headed back to a more sheltered spot for lunch tucked under a overhanging bank, at least out of the wind. Twenty minutes later we were off back down to the carpark to join the G1s for the drive back to Hamilton.

Thank you Tony and Rose for a well organised tramp.
