Wellington has some great outdoor adventures for both trampers and mountain bikers so this weekend is
intended to give a taste of both. Come for all 3 days over Matariki weekend or just pick the bits that appeal.

Friday – Ride the Skyline walkway from Makara Saddle to Mount Kaukau and back – about 20km on nontechnical tracks and four-wheel drive roads. A ridge top route with fabulous views also suitable for walking.

Saturday – Head off to Makara Beach and walk southwards along the beach to Opua Bay. Then up to the
gun emplacements on the cliff tops and explore Meridian’s Westwind recreation area before dropping back
down to Makara Beach.

Sunday – Makara Peak Mountain Bike Park – cycle some of the easier mountain bike tracks in the park (up
to grade 3). There are many dual use tracks suitable for walkers as well.

We can use my son’s place in Karori as a base. You will need sleeping bag, possibly an airbed and something
for shared meals.
