Track at Round Hill to Officially Open
The Te Araroa Trust are a national organisation whose goal is to create a hiking trail that spans the length of the country by 2010. With many sections of the track already opened in the North Island, Mayor Cardno will officially open the first section of the trail in Southland on 29 March. This section, the Long Hilly Walking Track, encompasses the historic Round Hill goldmining area and, eventually, Port's Water Race. The next section of the track will go through the Longwoods and Takitimu Mountains to the lakes of Mavora. I'm really looking forward to a track so close to home.
