From March 1st 2016 the Pine plantation in Kaitoke Regional Park that includes the Kaitoke Hill and Pylon Loop Tracks will be closed to the public from Monday to Friday 4am to 5pm for approximately 6 months to enable the loggng of the forest. Large machinery and logging trucks will be operating in this area.
With the 2007 opening of the Kaitoke Hill underpass connecting Kaitoke Regional Park to the Pakuratahi Forest, there are now tracks available for public horseriding at Te Marua.
Riders will need to collect a Horse Riding Permit and keys from GW's Upper Hutt office to ride in the pine plantation and through to the Pakuratahi Forest as there are several locked gates along the way.
The Te Marua pony club is based near the park entrance.
