Activity Hiking
Destination Surge Narrows
Date  11 Dec 2019
Trip Coordinator Julie Mellanby
Contact Info 3798.  Please contact the coordinator in advance of the trip.
Description We will drive to the end of the Surge Narrows Road and hike along the undulating, relatively short trail to the rocky bluffs overlooking the Narrows.  The current will not be running strongly.  We will then continue on the unmaintained route to a small bay.  It’s unlikely that the tide will be low enough to reach the island.  (Low tide at 11:05 – 3.7m; 10:07 – slack current, 12:48 – max flood 5.4 kt))
Meeting Place Heriot Bay Store for car pooling
Departure Time 10:00
Difficulty
The official trail is moderate but short; the route is more challenging
Costs none
Trip limits
Dogs? Dogs must not run through the group and would need to be particularly disciplined on the route
Notes: Bring  lunch and gear for the weather
