    Kaweka flat/Middle hill track

    Hi guys

    Anyone know if kaweka flat/ Middle hill tracks are o.k for a walk this weekend? Hearing theres a lot of snow damage about up there. Could anyone tell me if there is any way to get info on track conditions etc?

    Cheers

    Go for a walk

    There is snow damage but you can walk around it

    Take a small handsaw to make your jaunt a little easier

    Put up pics if there are large trees down and i will ask doc about taking a chainsaw in to tidy it up

    Just watch out for the Kehua.

    Oh and keep a sharp eye out for deer, especially in and around the gorge.

    There's bound to be Taniwha in the bloody gorge.

    It keeps scaring all my deer away
