Lake Kaurapataka – Arthurs Pass 21st/22nd January 2017
Driving over Arthurs Pass and down to Acikens on the West Coast Road. The tramp begins with a fairly major crossing of the Otira River, then up the Taramakau to the Otehake, and we camp at the mouth of the Otekahe gorge. Return via Lake Kaurapataka. A fairly straightforward tramp but lots and lots of river crossings. If the weather is wet, this will have to be postponed.

Saturday we will do some four wheel driving up the Glenthorne side of the Wilberforce River to approximately opposite the Moa Hut
(Algidus Station Hut) then walk to the Unknown Hut where we will stay the night. If there is enough members interested in doing the Moa saddle trip they would spend their second night in the Moa Stream Hut, the rest of us will walk into the head of the Unknown and spend our second night in a tent, what fun.
