About this Event

Have you #gottogetout and hike up to the epic Pinnacles Hut in the Coromandel Forest Park?

* This is a HIKE ONE GIVE ONE trip, meaning for each ticket purchased, we will take a kid outdoors for a fully guided experience for free another day *

Read all about it here: https://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/places-to-go/coromandel/places/coromandel-forest-park/things-to-do/pinnacles-hut/

Come along and follow a historic packhorse route used by kauri bushmen in 1920s. Marvel at spectacular views of the Coromandel Peninsula from the Pinnacles lookout (759 m).

About this adventure:

Hosted by Got To Get Out's trained adventure-guides Legend & Rachel, this adventure is an intermediate grade fairly steep, 3-4 hour hike, to get to the Pinnacles Hut.

From the hut to the summit of the Pinnacles is another 40 minutes, and offers breathtaking views. A reasonably good fitness level is required for this hike, please message us if you're unsure if you're up for it!

This trip is for 16yo+ please, though, younger will be considered if kids have hiking experience and the right gear. Message us to discuss!

Schedule:

We will be meeting at 7:30am on Saturday at Archie Cafe Ponsonby road.

We will then travel on a GTGO Adventure Bus to the start of the track, where we will be hiking to the Pinnacles Hut (our accommodation), NZ's largest backcountry hiking hut with beds for 80!

We will be having a shared dinner (Kai) so bring something to share! Food from your country, your fave dish, home made or store brought - just something to put on the table, and we can all work together to make a feast.

The next morning it's an early wake up for those that want to hike to the summit for stunning breathtaking sunrise views (hiking by 6am for this) over the region. After this, it's back to the Hut for pack/clean up before hiking back down the mountain. Depart around 8am.

We expect to arrive back in Auckland around 3pm on Sunday.

NOTE: if you do not live in AKL but are on the way and would like to arrange a pickup, please let us know! We can look at self-drive tickets for those who live outside of Auckland too, though our preference is for people to travel with us on the bus to all stay together.

Gear List:

Tramping pack, 3L water, sturdy walking shoes, 2x Lunch, 1x dinner (shareable), 1x breakfast, sleeping bag, warm clothes, spare clothing, hut shoes (no boots in hut), sunhat, packliner and pack cover.
