WHITFORD FOREST IS NOW OPEN
MARAETAI FOREST IS NOW CLOSED FOR LOGGING. DO NOT ENTER!!!!
While most of the tracks have been logged in Whitford, The good news is that the trails WCCT, Get a Perm, Wild Turkey and Mad Cow should be largely intact albeit with a big slip down Wild turkey and a fair bit of growth. Check out TrailForks for those tracks. We will have a working bee to tidy them up soon
The other good news is for those that don’t know the Whitford block; it is massive with miles of forest road to explore and get lost in
Even more good news is that we have plans to build some trails, find some lines, just go bush….just need to do some sussing out first-let us know if you find some riding joy!
Please be very careful parking at the Siberia Hill area, very dodgy getting into and out of there and there is work going on with that new development. Safer to park up Waikopua rd. Not sure about the legality about the other top entrance Aro-Kotinga Rd-anyone know?
UPDATE 20 MARCH 18
Breadheads has just been cleared with a working bee and a new up track out of it has been cleared. Cautions:
- Do not enter on Sundays due to the Archery Club operating around the entrance and you could be a target!
- Two new bridges are to be constructed at the bottom. Please beware as there is a gap at the bottom of a steepish section near the creek. This is being built shortly.
- Uphill section is still rough and will need more work. Pushable in places.
