    If the roads are open both ways, but it seems that they may be unusable. There is a post on here about it. You can also get a permit from First Security Rotorua for Kaiangaroa Forest at a cost of $50 per person.

    From my understanding the road is washed out through waipunga, I haven't had a chance to get back there and look.
    You also can't get a permit to just use it as access to whirinaki - I asked and was declined, so if you do apply for a permit just say for hunting.

    Yes.
    Who me? As the crow flies only 5kms but below in elevation. I had to be careful not getting stuck so I just walked around in the white stuff hence the sore calf muscles today.
