      Very waterlogged in places. Deep puddles on way back from dam. Lose rotary ride return trail near Wairaki resort due to closure of small section....

      It’s fine, but needless climbing in parts, the road would have been easier. Not overly obvious where the track is

       An effective way of moving between the Hub and the Resort Track. Rather unremarkable. Riders of all skill levels will be able to ride this track.
