On what was to be the hottest day ever recorded in Napier, Fe­bru­ary 2, 2020 a group of six Here­taunga Tramp­ing Club mem­bers had an early start from Have­lock North.

Our des­ti­na­tion was the Lawrence Road End trails in the Kaweka For­est Park about an hour’s drive up the Tai­hape Road, west of Napier.

Peter and Colin de­cided to take the six hour op­tion and go down the Tu­taekuri River Gorge.
