The Waihi Beach Wires Track

Sorry, this event has been CANCELLED.

Saturday, 14 April 2018

Grade 4

Registration Region: Waihi Beach

Duration: 1.5 hours return

Start Time: 10:00 am - Meet 10am at the Water Reservoir car park at the top of Pacific Road Waihi Beach.

This same walk will be running on Sunday 15th April due to bad weather forecast for the 14th.

Previously known as The Poles Walk, this is a track up a ridge line behind the old dam. The Waihi Beach Wires Track is a beautiful hike up and down ridges before reaching a rewarewa grove. At the top you will uncover a spectacular view over the Waihi Plains and Waihi Beach before returning via another ridge line.

It was suggested the Poles Walk be renamed to better reflect its historic connection with the Wires Tracks and because there was some confusion with the newly formed walk to the Trig.
