Title: Phew - a toughy!

Oakleigh Street down to Korokoro Dam, then up via Baked Beans Bend, then down towards Stratton Street, turning right to follow the track back up to Oakleigh. If I had read the track guide on the Greater Wellington site and seen that it was "Strenuous", then I probably wouldn't have gone that way! :)

Lots of creek crossings at lower Baked Beans track - watch out for those stinging nettles placed just where you would grab some foliage to steady yourself! Lucky I only got stung on my thumbprint but it's still sore four hours later.
