Sandra and Anna met at the Mount Bruce hall at 930am on 19 th July and headed to the
Kiriwhakapapa road end.
The weather had been quite drizzly and gloomy so we suited up with gaiters and jackets. After a
quick look at the map and discussion on track options from this road end, we headed along the track
towards the saddle. The track had quite a few puddles along the flat sections, the stream alongside
with extra water too. The bush was green and drippy with the drizzle. We unloaded the jackets and
jerseys as we headed up the hill. We found some interesting fungi alongside the track and Anna used
a phone app to find out what they were. We stopped at the saddle for a quick snack and then
continued downhill to the Mikimiki stream. We got glimpses of views of mist covered hills from a
couple of points on the hill. After filling water bottles at the Mikimiki stream and making a plan to
return to do the walk out to the Mikimiki road end, we headed back up the hill to the saddle. The
weather cleared a little more on the way out and we didn’t see anyone else on our tramp until we
got back to the carpark. Lunch in the shelter with a hot cuppa then home. A good stretch of the legs
