Lying in the heart of the scenic Kahuterawa Valley, the Sledge Track brings you face to face with the majesty of New Zealand’s native environment. From towering ancient trees to fantastic examples of this country’s unique fauna; from rocky waterfalls to trickling streams, massive boulders and tranquil surrounds – this track offers a journey into the essence of Aotearoa, land of the long white cloud. The Sledge Track is also home to some interesting fauna including the carnivorous New Zealand native land snail and its main food source the large native worm. This worm can grow up to 60cm long. Also found is a rare centipede that lives under the leaf litter along the track and a large bush dragonfly.
Please note this walk is not a loop walk, we will walk as far as Toe Toe Flats before heading back to the start of the track. Bring own lunch.
Bookings are essential – no ticket sales on the day.
Along the way Ian Argyle, a former resident and local historian will enlighten the group with a few historical stories.
Please ensure that you wear appropriate walking footwear, bring warm clothing, and pack plenty of adequate drink and food.
