Rewanui (Not the Manawatu Gorge)

As an alternative to the postponed Gorge trip three of us had a shorter walk around Rewanui Forest Park. First, we did a combined Totara and Matai loop, the tracks we in good condition, not too much mud, although we did do some minor track clearing of debris and hanging branches. We heard a few Tuis and the occasional Warbler during our walk.

Rather than climb to what looked to be a windy summit we drove around to the second car park and had a walk around the Exotic loop, stopping for lunch at the memorial seat. We were not the only visitors, with three other vehicles in the car park and one arriving as we left.

A pleasant short walk on what turned out to be a fine day in the east, it was still wet in the Tararuas as we returned to Masterton.

Those on the trip: Nigel, Brendan and Lorelei.
