Bagged Pureora
« on: February 02, 2009, 10:54:10 AM »
We bagged this peak the day after a friends wedding.  Needless to say there had been a lot of partaking in wine the day before, and I had a slight hangover.  Nothing that a bit of Nurofen and a lot of water couldn't fix though  ;) 

The walk up Pureora is invigorating but fairly short.  We did the walk in an afternoon as per the instructions on the site.  The walk goes through bush and you don't pop out of it until you're near the top of Pureora itself.  I liked this walk particularly for it's views at the top - you get to see the Central North Island Volcanoes from a new perspective.

The track is pretty well formed with boardwalks and steps, but I guess it could get quite muddy over the winter months.
