It was an early start as we didn't want to be in the heat all day. We did a 28km loop that went from Umakarikari car park to Umakarikari summit, across to Urchin, down to Urchin car park and back to Umakarikari car park. It took us about 7 and 1/2 hours. It was a good day. There was no cloud in the sky so there were good, clear views. At the top of Urchin there was an old trig and a great view of Mt Ruapehu, Mt Ngauruhoe and Mt Tongariro. We stopped to have lunch there and for photos and then we carried on to urchin car park. Overall it was a good day on my first trip to the Kaimanawas.  :D
