This month we headed north to Waihi and started from the Gilmour Lake carpark.  Heading, initially, though Gilmour Reserve we stopped to view the memorial to the Waihi World War 1 Tunnellers involved in Arras, France.

Then we followed the Ohinemuri River for a while before circling around the base of Black Hill.

Almost back to the start we detoured along Mill Stream walkway and then back to the reserve where, since the weather was so pleasant, we enjoyed an early lunch by the lake.
