    Mathias river 4wd advice

    Hi all,
    After a bit of advice on heading up the Mathias, was thinking going over from double hill to Manuka point, then sticking on the true right? What’s the likely hood of making it to about Mathias hut and walk from there. Any pointers would be useful
    Cheers

    Think the rivers still a bit high to cross at a guess.

    Going in next Saturday, very reliant on weather obviously but given no rain between Monday and the following Saturday should be looking alright

    Easy as so long as rivers are ok. Follow road to the end, past Double Hill, big sign indicating Manuka Point crossing, cross to Manuka Point on track, pick up DoC sign when almost at Manuka Point, turn right, and follow markers. And if you get lost ask one of the 40 other trucks going up there, where to go. And if you stay in the hut, make sure you make your donation to the Rakaia NZDA, for the maintenance an upkeep of the hut.

    The weather's supposed to get nasty tonight and tomorrow morning hopefully not too much then. May run into you up that way.

    Mathias up & down pretty quick after a good rain. Rakaia a bit slower to drop tho. Stick to true right up to the Downs them follow the wheel marks after the crossing there. Let the Rakaia NZDA know if there's something that needs doing at hut, feed back is good. A group of scum left it in a shambles last year.
