‘The Block’ as it is known in 4wd circles is an area in the northern block of the Pureora Forest set aside for 4×4 activities and managed by the King[See the full post at: Pureora Forest, The Block]
Michael J Breen and Sharn Amon might be interested in this one.
I went up one of the tracks from the campsite and stopped here seeing as I was on my own, it got slippery pretty quick.
Interesting. Never realised Pureora Forest continued north of SH30. I remember mapping the section west of SH32 for the open maps. Looks like Waitaramoa Road isn’t accurate in the maps either 😀 hehe
Definitely. Sue and I also want to mountain bike the Pureora
Yea looks interesting. Maybe we could take ropes for the DR’s? ???? Uncle Sharn will tow ya Jake
Checked this out on my travels, great isolated spot and the ride to it is just as good as you get the feeling on being in the middle of nowhere riding 20+km into a forest with not another soul around. It may have been due to the rain of late, but there didn’t seem to be many suitable spots to camp if it was to rain (looks like there would be places with standing water or boggy.) The facilities themselves are great and better stocked than any free doc campsite I’ve been to.
