Gondola Base – Duncan Reserve – Tors – Bridle Path

Sunday 21 June

Local resident, Ian Beale steered us onto this circuit when it was obvious the Purple Hill climb was not a goer. We parked as if going up the Bridle Path but instead contoured above Horotane Valley and Duncan Park and started climbing at a big power pylon to get to the Crater Rim Walkway. Drizzle around Lyttelton Harbour made us scurry along to the top of the Bridle Path where we elected to go down to our starting point and so be gone by lunchtime. Thanks go to Ian for his guidance on this chilly day.

We were: Ian Beale, Eileen Mackie. KyungSang Lee, Kathy Ramsay, Shi Ping Wang and Kerry Moore. [KM]
