    Update Kaimai Huts new and existing

    The Outdoor Recreation Consortium's big project for 2016 has been confirmed as a contribution to a new hut in the Kaimai ranges. This hut will be the first of several to be built by the Kaimai Ridgeway Charitable Trust, which is a collaboration of trampers,hunters and the local community.

    Recreation (and conservation) has languished in the Kaimai, but with its proximity to population, diverse forest and even some tops it is an area with huge potential for increased participation.

    The update below is from Auckland Tramping Club's 'Wanderlust' magazine.

    "Kaimai Project Update
    Some major progress has happened over the last month or so
    Te Rereatukahia Hut now has a real sink bench under a covered
    verandah extension, a hearth ready for a logburner, and an empty
    woodshed waiting for firewood to be flown in. The log burner
    installation and painting work is expected to happen before Christmas –
    lead group Kaimai Ramblers
    We have completed the designs and submitted a funding for our first
    new hut at the Ngamuwahine Shelter site – lead group Bay Of Plenty
    Deerstalkers
    The Manukau Tramping Club have put up their hands for the
    maintenance of Dalys Clearing Hut and local tracks
    The Tauranga Mid Week Tramping Group have volunteered to take on
    the maintenance of the top section of the Leyland O’Brien Tramway
    track – in addition to all the tracks in the southern Kaimais that they
    already maintain
    The Cambridge Tramping Club has taken on responsibility for the track
    from the top of Wairere Falls down the Kaimai Ridgeway and out on the
    Te Tuhi track to the edge of the farmland – one of our popular tramps
    Track work has been happening in the Lindemanns area led by the
    Katikati Tramping Club, and a group of us did track maintenance on the
    tracks to the east and south of the Te Tuhi / Kaimai Ridgeway junction,
    with a side trip also into the very tidy little Mangamuka Hut.
    Our DOC partnership agreement is being extended to include the
    Kaimai Ridgeway route from SH29 all the way to where the Mangakino
    Pack Track reaches the Waitawheta River.
    We are close to the formation of a Kaimai Ridgeway Charitable Trust to
    take over the responsibility for the now wide ranging partnership
    agreement and Kaimai Backcountry Management Plan – this will be a
    joint tramping and deerstalkers organisation with major responsibilities
    for a large part of the Kaimai hut and track network
