Ruahine FP, Track and Hut Maintenance (Posted 22 May)
Kia Ora RUG,
Currently we have Track Cutters completing track maintenance in the Northern sectors of the Ruahine Forest Park. The work is expected to take 2-4 weeks in ideal conditions, starting with the Ngamoko Range and Yeomans track through to Golden Crown and the track network associated with this area including the Aranga hut tracks. Once completed they will continue with the Iron Bark to Waiokotore via Ohutu ridge track all the way through to Waiokotore campsite to Te Potae TK.
There are number of smaller tracks that we will be cutting in this areas as well.
Should you require further information please do not hesitate to contact me (Mike) directly on 027 245 6033 with a brief message and I will get back to you as soon as I can as I will be in out of the office over the next 4 weeks.
