    The road up to the Cobb Reservoir is a twisty sealed road that winds it’s way up a river valley to the Cob Dam, then is unsealed as it makes it’s way

    Cobb Valley is currently inaccessible due to storm damage from Cyclone Gita. A bridge near the beginning of the road is washed out and there is significant damage in a number of places further up the road.

    You can find access updates on the DOC link at the end of the main article above.

    Cobb Dam was still inaccessible up when last I checked mid Nov. DoC staff at Takaka were saying they were trying to have the road clear by Mid Dec in time for the Xmas holidays. Unfortunately the slip is active & every major rain dump causes further movement.

    Once it is clear, the huts are expected to be over run, so take a tent if you intend to stay
