Mt Vernon

Mt Vernon

Continuing on from Te Heru o Kahukura / Sugarloaf / Bowenvale / Thomson Reserve / Taukahara (we rest our case on the excessive naming activity on the crater summit!), we stopped below Mt Vernon. Another carpark after 1.5 kms offered another great viewpoint and from there you can follow an informal track up 60 metres to the top of Mt Vernon. However, we were set on climbing Upoko-o-Kuri / Witch Hill, mainly because it had a rockier peak and more interesting name.
