    In December there was a washout on the Patearoa side of the track that wasn’t well signposted.

    We built a small wooden bridge that from timber stuck in a fence over the stream nearby

    2 people were pulling, 2 pushing, we did not dare to ride through it as it looked pretty difficult

    Rode the part from the Moa Flat side to Poulburn and back Saturday Nov 23. Condition was bumpy with lots of rock poking through surface but otherwise good. Had two beginner riders with me no one had any problems.

    K, I’ll try that for the next one. I thought this was a good way of showing the route.

    What does the new sign say? It is closed over winter normally.

    But the doesn’t the sign say it’s closed through the winter until the 3rd of October, “Crosby Travels” post was 10th November, so I thought there must be a new sign attached to the gate and was wondering what that said. I am hoping to get down that way this summer.

    I had also assumed that this was a closure over and above the normal seasonal closure.
    Is anybody able to say whether it’s open now?
    Thanks
    Chris

    Any update if the gate is still locked?
    Hope to head down there later next week.
    I await your replies.
