Te Mata Peak


PHOTO: SUPPLIED Blessing of the former Te Mata Peak track took place on the morning of October14, 2019, before the final stage of remediation began.

It was the walking track that split a community, but should soon be nothing more than a faint line on a hillside.

Hastings District Council will this week begin work on filling in the lowest stretch of the 1.8km track up the eastern face of Te Mata Peak, which was cut by Craggy Range winery in 2017.

About 1.3km of track needs to be filled-in. The intention was to start on Monday, with machinery on site, but it has been delayed until Wednesday or Thursday due to bad weather.

It is expected to take about a month to complete.
