Fences and Orange Poles
« on: February 08, 2010, 02:13:48 PM »
We tackled the Mt William Walkway from the Puketutu end due to a combination of reasons. Firstly we trialled the idea of a point to point walk using two cars and we also had two seriously un-motivated junior members of our "peak-bagging" party. Therefore we walked all the way through to the McMillan Rd which is down hill overall.

The track condition was bone dry but quite uneven in places due to various horse-treckers sharing the walkway. However the views that come from open fields are very satisfying.

The only grumble was that it looks like someone has attempted to fence off access to the summit and trig point. I hope this is just a temporary state of affairs and that some styles will be added to the new fences enable access via the summit in future.

A pretty good half day family outing all in all.
