4WD Back Country Akatarawa « Back to Events calendar
Description:

Bring your vehicle and join the Cross Country Vehicle Club for a relaxed tagalong trip through Akatarawa Forest. Both sessions start at McCurdys Road, Totara Park, go up through the Akatarawa's to Orange Hut and return back to Totara Park. Max 30 vehicles per session. 

 

Morning session: 9am - 1pm

Afternoon session: 1:30pm - 5:30pm.

We have had to change what is happening for the 4WD Akatarawa trip for Saturday 23rd Feb.

Originally we had planned to do two one way trips (from Totara Park to Maungakotukutuku and then back).
However part of the track has now been deemed unsafe as a result of flood damage so we have had to change both the morning and the afternoon trips to return trips from Totara Park. 
Meaning that both the morning and afternoon trips will now start and end at Totara Park.
Because of this, the trip will now be slightly longer (1 hour) than originally advertised, meaning the times of the sessions are now:
Morning session: 9am - 1pm
Afternoon session: 1:30pm - 5:30pm.
