A descent of approx 450m from Opouri Saddle following an old 'bridle' (horse) track 3km down to near  Duncans Bay. This goes through some magnificent virgin native bush. A short drive to Duncan Bay from where we take  the Nydia Track around Tennyson Inlet for approx 3km then another 3 km through more stunning native bush for lunch at Nydia Saddle. (347m) We return the same way to the cars at Duncan Bay. Total distance 15 km on a generally well-formed and well-used track. Should be back in Nelson about 5 pm.
