Below are a few photos from a hike I did on the weekend called The Pinnacles. It's on the Coromandel Peninsula and is about a 90 minute drive from Auckland. You can find more info about it here. It was a misty day when I went so the views were great, but the conditions made the hike almost more interesting and mysterious. The first half of the hike was through jungle-like terrain that involved crossing back and forth over a stream and waterfalls, with swinging bridges and stepping stones. The second half was alpine hiking and bare rock faces.
The entire hike was about 20km round trip, with some seriously steep sections.
