General Discussion / Waikaremoana with Kids?
« on: November 25, 2013, 03:11:51 PM »
 Hi there, we have an 8 and 10 year old, both fit and sporty and have loved the tramping we've done so far. We've done some decent day tramps and did the Pinnacles out from Thames as an overnighter. We're thinking of doing the Lake Waikaremoana circuit next year with them and my questions are:
 1) Is the bluff too much for kids to attempt? So should we boat into or out of the closest drop off point, eliminate the hill and shorten the walk?
2) Which would be the best direction? If we DID do the whole tramp is it better to get the hill out of the way first when fresh and excited, or at the end when packs are lighter and bit more seasoned to the walking??
 Any experience/advice much appreciated. I'd rather not learn by mistake when so much experience out there.
Cheers, Sharon


Thanks, Sharon Skinner
