Whanganu river to Pouri Hut is 20km of 90% unridable terrain! Especially the first 3km from river to the track is a 400m climb where you will need to carry your bike in most places.

From Puketotara Hut to Pouri Hut has lots of slips, large obstacles, very uneven ground, you will spend more time pushing with few places that require bike carrying. There are rare ridable sections, these are more frequent when you get close to Pouri Hut.

Pouri Hut to start of track is excellent technical bush riding in most places, 95% ridable!
