Had a great day on Kapiti. Boat ride was wonderful, water was very smooth. Saw and heard lots of different birds. Weka everywhere! A nice hike up the steep trig track, a little steep but really not bad. Plenty of birds to stop and look at to take a rest. We took off first from the information center and had the trail to ourselves all the way to the summit. Beautiful Island, nice walk, GREAT DAY!
GPS Data: Height: 521m ( 1709ft), Distance: 5.0km ( 3.1mi), Total Ascent: 546m ( 1791ft), Time: 1hr 20min to summit, then spent another 3+ hrs exploring the island and listening to the birds

Track (with some extra walking around by the beach, 6.5km):
