We did have an incident in the Hunua’s last weekend where a 2 hikers from our group got separated and supposedly went down a possum trapping track. Probably worth mentioning that in terms of the Auckland region at least. Most trails are marked with…
- An Orange plastic Triangle marker with the most pointy tip marking the direction of travel.
- Or an Pole (Orange or faded orange)
Please be aware, the Pink Triangles and ribbons are not the ones to follow (unless you are a trapper)
If one finds them off the track, in the bush, with no clear path direction and no orange markets, it would be wise advised to retrace your steps until you find Orange Makers.
