    Found this road while out exploring for map accuracy. Being May I had to abandon the centre of the road as I was by myself and the K60 I knew wouldn’t handle mud. The trench I dug just turning around at that point reinforced my thoughts…

    Access the road east of Taihape from Pungatawa Rd in the north or Torere Rd from the south. Both ends have warnings it’s not passable to 2WD vehicles beyond maintained sections.

    The NZ Open GPS maps have some of the road, so if anyone does it, I’d love the track to give to them, or post it to the CNI feedback thread.

    Bart’s nemesis road. Take him there on a bike & he’s bound to drop it & break some levers…

    Does anyone have a GPS track of Kotukuraeroa Rd?

    Nope, sorry. Ridden it, but don’t have a track for it.

    I can only give you the pieces at either end, and they’re in the open source maps (about 1.5-2km missing in the middle)

    If you’ve got those tracked send it through. I’ve been halfway along it but before I started tracking stuff.

    Rode Kotukuraeroa Road today with a pillion and luggage one section in the middle was a bit boggy but otherwise a really nice route maybe not for beginners and would be a lot more challenging in the wet. I have attached my tracklog including a small deviation
