  • Kapakapanui - Day Trip on Saturday?

    Hi all! I'll be going to Kapakapanui (about 60km from Wellington) on Saturday, leaving 10AM.The plan is to run the Kapakapanui loop (yes, run, this hill is a nice little cardio-trainer). So, we might do the loop in a bit under 4 hours. Have a look at the map (link here) or DOC website (link here) and let me know if you are interested. Achim
