Got the Hamilton/Waikato book. - DEFFO RECOMMEND!
Lived in Hamilton for 35yrs and keen on outdoors, so I have done quite a few hikes, but this book opened up our backyard like no other guides/books/websites have ever done!
DOC website might have stuff on serious hikes or back country stuff, and the local district council might have some info, but for family & kidfriendly stuff you're left wanting... until you find this book!
The track gradings, walk times etc are all realistic and accurate (much better than DOC info!)
Hoping they print more of the other 2 books, because I want them after seeing the quality of the info in the book we got!
Love how it shows what the tracks are suitable so informative 😁😁
Can't wait to start ticking these off with my boys! Been living in Waikato for the past 2 years and wow! There are so many places I didn't even know existed. The rest of our summer is gonna be busy :)
My Mum bought one then showed it to me. Loved it so much I then purchased my own copy. One down, 107 to go!
Received the book and promptly opened it..looking forward to discovering the places within myself, either with the grandees or not! Well laid out and informative as to how user friendly each place is etc..a bonus if you want to take a buggy or wheelchair! Looking forward to ticking off the places we have been!
