The Croesus Track is a loop track running from the Smoke-ho car park near Blackball up a bush covered valley to overnight at the 16 bunk Ces Clark hut which has great views of the Grey Valley. It's is a beautiful 4 – 5 hour walk into the landscape of the Paparoa Ranges. There is plenty of evidence of the local gold mining heritage, and a variety of vegetation and wildlife. There will be time to look around the old gold stamping battery and an opportunity to watch the sun set over the Tasman Sea, if the weather permits. The Croesus Track is one of the few pack tracks on the West Coast that ascends over 1000 m above sea level, and its high points provide excellent views of the Southern Alps and the sea. The walk out on Sunday will be via the skyline ridge route and then down through the bush via a hunter’s track to the Smoke-ho car park. It's an ideal tramp for people new to overnight tramping. 7 am departure

This is a lovely 14 km loop in the Canterbury foothills. We start at the Glentui Bush picnic area and go through some mountain beech forest – some steepish sections with a 700m height gain – to Mt Richardson itself (1,047m ), and a great panorama over the Canterbury plains and Lees Valley. The return trip follows the Blowhard Track giving an opportunity to walk along the open tops; at about half way along the Blowhard Track, we then descend back into the bush along the Bypass Track and floow the ridge down the eastern side of the Glentui River. On the way back to the cars we can sto and check out the beautiful waterfall on the Glentui River.
