A 4x4 track used by most recreational users of Akatarawa Forest. You will see a few trail and quad bikes and the odd 4x4 vehicle.

Hydro is a reasonably steep climb and it carries on a long way. The top of Hydro is a junction with Titi and Campbell Mill Rd in Whareroa Farm

Access Info

The top of Hydro is the junction with Whareroa Farm and Akatarawa Forest. The bottom of Hydro is accessed off Big Ring Boulevard (part of the Karapoti Classic) via Norms crossing.
