Wilderness

Letter of the month

Your Trips, YOUR PIX • What did you get up to last weekend?

WALK SHORTS

How to start walking 1200km • They say every great journey begins with a single step. But sometimes knowing if you’re ready to take that first step is the hard part.

A walk in nature leads to reduced stress and tension • To gain the full mental health benefits of the Walk1200km challenge, do as many bushwalks as possible

I’m doing it for my health • Thomas Mandeno wants to lose some weight and has joined Walk1200km for his overall health and to ‘see if I can do it’. He spoke to Alistair Hall

I want to make walking a daily habit • Ines Bruins was stuck in managed isolation quarantine when she discovered the Walk1200km challenge. It helped keep her sane, she says.

A world-class carry system • Lowe Alpine has been perfecting its world-class carry system since 1967. Wilderness discovers the story behind the brand.

Walking and trapping • One way to boost your monthly tally of kilometres walked is to find a purpose – like checking traplines. Kathy Ombler shares what it’s like.

YOUNG HUT BAGGER BEGINS LONGEST JOURNEY • On the eve of starting Te Araroa Trail, Victoria Bruce reflects on the journey that led her and her seven-year-old daughter to tackle a 3000km trail

PUTTING THE OI INTO MT KARIOI • A community project is ensuring a bright future for the grey-faced petrels of Mt Karioi.

Absolutely positively wild • Wellingtonian Justin Amor is filming his outdoor adventures for a new YouTube series that shows viewers how to survive off the land and how to cope with adversity in the hills.

A BAND OF BIRDS • Auckland musician Henrieta Tornyai has enlisted the help of an unlikely backing band for her next album; New Zealand’s endemic birds.

See more ... Mistakes • Not all mistakes are bad. Take these three, for example, which should be on your wishlist.

CHARACTER AMIDST THE MOUNTAINS • Hooker Hut, Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park

AN APPEALING CIRCUIT • Waipakihi Hut, Kaimanawa Forest Park

DORE PASS, Fiordland National Park

KAWEKA J Kaweka Forest Park • A trip to the highest point in Hawke’s Bay provides spectacular views over a seemingly endless maze of untamed terrain.

BEEBYS HUT, Mount Richmond Forest Park • Mention St Arnaud and tramping and most people will automatically think of Nelson Lakes National Park. But only a few kilometres to the north-east is a little-known high point of Mt Richmond Forest Park – Beebys Knob and hut.

MANGAMUKA HUT VIA NGAMUWAHINE TRACK, Kaimai Mamaku Conservation Park • Of the various huts dotted along the old logging and mining trails in Kaimai Mamaku Conservation Park, Mangamuka Hut is perhaps one of the less frequented. Located a nudge off the North-South Track, it makes for a worthwhile weekend in the bush.

VIA CES MT CLARK WATSON HUT , • Paparoa National Park

A forgotten land • A trip to the West Coast’s Stafford Hut and Carmichael Plateau is a journey through time and untamed wilderness.

Getting technical in Taupo • The Waihaha Hut Track provides a refreshing technical ride for those who have completed the nearby Great Lakes Cycle Trail.

PADDLING BETWEEN GIANTS • FOR SHEER DISTANCE, RAFTING THE WAIAU TOA/CLARENCE RIVER MAKES AN UNBEATABLE WILDERNESS JOURNEY.

Best of the WEST • Having neglected his local tramping ground for too long, Matthew Cattin set out to walk every reopened track in the Waitākere Ranges
