The Pinnacles walk follows the original steps constructed for pack horses which carried supplies for kauri loggers, gum diggers and gold miners who gum diggers and gold miners who plundered the area in the early 1900's.
The children enjoyed their overnight stay in the DoC hut, preparing their own meals and enjoying each others company.
A few children continued the last few hundred metres to climb the actual Pinnacles, and were rewarded with 360 degree panoramic views of both coasts of the Coromandel,, the Bay of Plenty, Hauraki Gulf and Plains.
