New Members - Tramping Trips

For newcomers to tramping and the club, club trips are graded as Easy, Medium or Fit. We recommend starting with an easy or medium graded day trip. Feel free to telephone the trip leader for more information, or you can have a look at general trip information in the Trip List page.

The tracks or routes we take may be less developed than the standard of DOC Great Walk trails. Even on easier trips you may encounter hilly terrain, muddy or rocky trails with tree roots and other obstacles, and unbridged stream crossings. Suitable clothing and footwear is necessary. A trip leader may exclude a person from a trip if it is considered they are inadequately equipped.

New members need to complete at least one Medium grade club trip before embarking on a Fit trip.
