Wind and rain af­fects tracks

Walking New Zealand - - Walk Talk -

Septem­ber winds and rain have af­fected tracks in the Manawatu. The sec­ond slip on the Oroua track is large but ne­go­tiable.

Two large slips have fallen on the Oroua track (to Alice Nash Me­mo­rial Her­itage Lodge and Iron Gates Hut). The first is about 100m past the stile at the park bound­ary. The sec­ond is on the next cor­ner. There is a lot of mud and de­bris, so this part of the walk is a lit­tle rougher than nor­mal, but still pass­able. You'll def­i­nitely get your boots dirty.

Sev­eral small, eas­ily ne­go­ti­ated wind­falls have been re­ported at the western end of the Manawatu Gorge track.
