    Tongariro Forest park - 42 traverse

    Hi all,

    A buddy of mine wants to head up the 42nd traverse over Queens birthday weekend to do some riding on the quads. I'm keen to spend most of my time deerstalking because I'm playing to the foot-hours game at the moment to cut my teeth and get my first Doc-land deer. Does anyone know what the area is like? I read on the DOC website that it was heavily milled back in the day - is the bush pretty tight regrowth? Any info is much appreciated.

    Cheers
    Yeah nah bro

    We head to Owhango for a dirtbiking week every year, do quite a bit of riding up 42nd Traverse along the tracks, there are areas being milled, majority of it is pretty thick though, was gonna take my rifle with me this year but the sprog is due the same time of the trip in 3 weeks.

    Tell your mate to be bloody careful when riding the 42nd, some lunatics down there, mate hit a quad that was over on his side of the road head on last year, ended his weekend and was bloody lucky to come away with some bruises, his new YZ450 not so lucky though, 4k damages!

    Cheers for the info. I'll let my mate know to be on guard - 4k in damages would suck!

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
