A fairly hard wet 10km walk on the Paekakariki Escarpment high above SH1 and the North Island Trunk Line from Paekakariki to Pukerua Bay with hundreds of steps up and down – great views though. Return trip gratis thanks to Gold Card on the train. One day trip to Kapiti Island gave a good walk plus saw the tremendous benefit of a pest free environment with birds everywhere – and so tame.
