This was closed for two years to the public to move wind turbines through to Mill stream, they widened the road and graveled it making it great for beginners once the links around it are sorted out. One link is planned from Spicer botanical park to this area.
You can use the Te Ara Roa and create an easy loop

 The road is mainly gravel and tarmac. the steeper sections being tarmac and flat bits being gravel. Probably quite manageable!
