Tuesday, 19 April 2022

Grade 4-5

Nearest Town: Katikati

Registration Region: Katikati

Duration: 5 hours

Start Time: 9:00 am - At the end of Hot Springs Road

Cost: Donation

Sentinel Rock Lookout

We start out the day by parking at the end of Hot Springs Road in Katikati. We then proceed along the Tuahu track, which is a well-formed track thanks to DOC who have done some recent upgrading work resulting from the Kauri dieback  threat. After around 25 minutes we reach a section of board walk around a huge Kauri.

After taking that in, we follow a well signed track to our left to Sentinel Rock Lookout. This section is steeper and more rugged. After toiling away, we will finally reach the Lookout to Sentinel Rock. The Lookout affords a wide panorama with the Sentinel Rock clearly in view.

With the uncertainty of Covid, we are registering 10 people for this walk and running a waiting list there after.

At such times as the Festival rolling around in April 2022, we will have a better understanding for numbers allowed in a group and will contact the wait list to fill the extra spots.
