The Pinnacles, Coromandel is a 'must do' in Auckland and you are invited to join the Got To Get Out crew as we hit this overnight hike for the second time!

This hike is of moderate-hard intensity (about 4 or so hours each way with packs). If you are a first time hiker or concerned about your fitness, please get in touch before the event date.

We stay the night in a really comfortable DOC hut that has space for a whopping 80 people. We cook together, enjoy some banter, then head home after a hot soak in the nearby hot springs.This trek is not to be missed.

We will depart Auckland city around 8.30am, stop off and hear an insightful presentation about natural wildlife.

Then we hike to the Pinnacles D.O.C hut, drop bags, then hit the summit for sunset!
Dinner together and good times, then head home on the Sunday via the hot pools in Miranda to relax on the way home.
