    Odlins Road, also known as Waiotauru Road, runs from the summit of Akatarawa Road which joins Brown Owl in Upper Hutt north of Wellington with Waikanae on the Kapiti coast. The track entrance is located directly opposite the Akatarawa Road summit carpark.

    Your video shows a lot of trees down onto the track. I live in Wellington city and didn’t realise we had a heavy snowfall to cause that amount of damage.
    A folding pruning saw would deal to that tree above https://www.trademe.co.nz/home-living/outdoor-garden-conservatory/hand-tools-equipment/loppers-pruners/auction-1437614914.htm

    We went yesterday with some mates. Odlins RD it’s all clear up to the summit. We didn’t get up to the hut since we were running out of daylight.
    There were some odd branches on the road, but nothing that will stop you getting there. Also the road has been smoothed at some places.

    We went up October 2017. Thanks to the 4wd guys who had cut down a lot of the tree branches from the snow fall this winter.
    2 x Dr 650, 1 x KL650 and 1 X Triumph Tiger XC.
    All made it to the hut bar Tiger. He (I) stopped about 1/4 of the way down at the first steep gut. Good call too from the sounds of things.



    Good tyres helped but defiantly as far as you can push a heavy adv bike.

    Did it yesterday. My first time but track was in pretty good condition. Yes, there’s tricky bits but they were no drama on the WR. Would not take my Tenere in there though…
