Te Whiti Riser – Sunday, 27 August 2017

11 members of the Upper Hutt Walking and Tramping Club enjoyed a fine day and somewhat blustery conditions when walking both the Riser and Eastern hills, as we made our way to the Pueatua Bridge. Underfoot conditions were very good considering the rain that had fallen the previous week.

This walk allows for many views of the Hutt Valley, Wainuiomata, Wellington and of course the snow-covered Kaikoura’s in the South Island. With the day being fine we also encountered many bike riders on the track. The track is shared, so be alert for riders who could be coming up behind you or towards you.

We stopped for lunch prior to reaching the bridge. Once lunch was over, we made our way and crossed the bridge to walk down the Wainuiomata Hill Road and back to our vehicles via Riverside Drive.

A most enjoyable day.
