Nina Valley Trail

Cassandra and I joined Canterbury University's Tramping club (hiking = tramping) and went on a two day tramp in Lewis Pass over a few rivers and through a bunch of mud and through a bunch of beech tree. The bridges we crossed were about 20 to 30 feet off the water. I don't know what the elevation of the trail was but it didn't gain much over the whole trail.

If you look hard you can see the group up there in the trees. That was the path we we took.

What elevation did you reach? According to the photo the first bridge looked several feet down! Some great pictures. Thanks for sharing.
