We will walk up towards the summit of the mountain along the Wairere Traverse which is a gravelled track, so hopefully not too muddy. The track will be quite steep in places but punters should be rewarded with a good altitudinal vegetation sequence and views of the surrounding area (don’t get too excited it is farmland). If time permits we can go looking for Brachyglottis kirkii, in flower near the top of the mountain.
