Title: Hawkins Hill
Post by: BigRichNZ on February 08, 2013, 04:05:52 AM
Waitangi day, and not much else to do, so hauled the family down to Wellington to bag Hawkins Hill.  Nice day, bit of a cool southerly still breezing through, but otherwise fine.  Pretty simple straight forward walk.  Started from the Brooklyn wind turbine.  Paved road all the way, only get's a bit steeper at the end.  Quite a few vehicles on the road, so had to keep a good eye out for them.  Great views all round.  47 minutes up, and 43 minutes down.
