  Due to Covid-19 this walk is suspended. It probably won't happen
  This is a Saturday walk
NOTE: The start time has changed from when this was first advertised
Medium: Walk along Waterline Road to lower end of Ernies Track. There is a bit of new boardwalk on this lower part as you sidle the top end of the reservoir. Then cross the stream, followed by a good climb to point 497 with some great views over the Hunuas and beyond. Continue past the end of the Upper Mangatawhiri Track, then drop down to Piggots Hut.

There are two options from here - a longer option on the Rata Ridge Track follows above Quartz Stream followed by another good climb to point 455, then drops to Lilburne Road and from there back to the carpark. The shorter option goes straight down Lilburne Road from Piggots Hut. A nice mix of open tracks and bush.
