    Stayed at the free Doc camp ground, nice and secluded with two fire pits and a river by your feet to enjoy. Just remember to bring loo paper as was none in the long drop. Near the end of Takaputahi Rd well past the campground is a water crossing that could be good for practice. I didn’t cross the river to Otipi track as was by myself and there was certainly some current and depth to it.

    A group of 3 of us on Wednesday 2 January did what must have been the Otipi Track.
    Crossed the river to the right of the bridge. Reasonably technical in spots, a couple of slips across the track.
    Lunch in the long grass beside the Motu River.
    Great ride though !
