The Pelorus River Track is now far behind us, today we start The Richmond Alpine route, dubbed “the most demanding section of the Te Araroa Trail”, it’s to be a big test of Nicky’s fitness and newfound mountaineering skills!
It almost seemed ridiculous how many times the path kept darting from one side of the stream to the next as we left Hackett Hut? I’m sure the trail builders were taking the piss! Luckily the water level was really low and easy stepping-stones were found for all the crossings.
