Leitch’s track Family Weekend Tramp

Sat-Sun

26/27 March 2022

 

Easy tramping trip to Letich’s Hut in the Waikato region. 3 Hr/8.5km walk in from the road end along a former surveyed road and is well graded. Well suited to families with kids to a standard DOC hut (16 bunks). I would suggest bring a tent along in case the hut is full. The hut is first come, first served basis. We will meet at the road end at mid-day Saturday and walk out early afternoon Sunday back to the cars.
