A cache on the Gum's Loop Walk, near a swing bridge which leads to the portion of Reservoir Road which was recently opened to the public and heads to the Lower Dam. From near the GZ for my cache you have the choice of walking the Gum's Loop walk, the Reservoir Road or stopping for a picnic or any combination thereof. This cache will hopefully encourage you to include the Wainuiomata Water Catchment in your travels.
(Note that the catchment area is only open to the public from 8 a.m to dusk, see GC44JQR for more details. Remember that owing to the shadow of the hills dusk comes quite early here in winter! The time restriction does not apply to the Gums Loop walk.) The cache is a 200 ml Sistema.
The GZ area is popular with muggles with and without their dogs so please exercise lots of stealth. (dogs are permitted on a leash on the Gums Loop Track but not on the portion of Reservoir Road between the swing bridge and the Reservoir)
WARNING: THERE IS STINGING NETTLE IN THE AREA BUT THE CACHE IS PLACED WHERE THERE IS NO NEED TO TOUCH ANY PLANTS Please return the cache carefully so it cannot be seen my muggles. I highly recommend going for a short stroll right to the end of the picnic area track, it's a lovely spot.
