Puketi Forest Kauri Challenge
The Puketi Forest Kauri Challenge is an annual fundraising event organised by the Puketi Forest Trust. The Challenge comprises a choice of either a full 21km tramp or a shorter 12km tramp through some of the most spectacular parts of Puketi Forest. The route passes through a diverse range of forest types, includes varied terrain and stunning views, and ends with a picnic reception at Forest Pools. A good level of fitness and some tramping experience are required. The 2020 Challenge was held on 1 February 2020 with 134 participants.
After careful thought, the Puketi trustees have decided not to hold a walk in 2021, mainly because of the uncertainty with covid. Organising takes a lot of time and is a strain on our people resources, which would be wasted if we had to cancel. After a break, we should be keen to go again in 2022.
