Construction work on the new Kaimai hut - Te Whare Okioki - is continuing under the management of the Kaimai Ridgeway Trust. Progress is now rapid, with a possible opening during May this year. Once we have an opening date determined, we will advise this to ATC members to encourage as many as possible to attend the opening ceremony.

The next monthly ATC track clearing working weekend is scheduled for April 14 to 16, returning to our favourite track above the Waiorongomai Vally, from Pylon Peak southwards.

Check the ATC calendar for the scheduled dates, but if you are keen to work at other times, that can be arranged too. Contact Tony for more details – Ph 630 2591, email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
