Due to windfall trees from last weeks storm, Back Track is currently closed. Work to remove the trees will take place this week and it is expected that the track will be open again next week.
The track from Black Bridge up the switchbacks has been upgraded and trees down across this track cleared. This is now rideable uphill!
Approx 1500 tonnes of trees have been blown over in Woodpecker forest. PNCC are applying for an extension to the resource consent, so they can extract these now, while they still have some value. So logging in the area may continue for some months yet.
At the current time, no logging is taking place and access is now possible on weekdays until further notice.
