There has also been a major contribution to this work from the volunteer efforts taking care of the Dept of Conservation camp at Millar Road, Lake Okareka. Thank you to those volunteers.
There is still a lot more volunteer work to happen on the track, with a lot more timber edging to be done and around 250T of gravel to be carried in. We would like to thank Dennis Falconer for the use of his barge to carry some of the edging timber to where it was needed along the track. Verda International Ltd have been very supportive towards the project with excellent deals on timber requirements for track edging, pegs, nails, etc.
There will be on going volunteer working bees over the coming months to complete the work on the track. If you are interested to help please contact Sandra or Mike Goodwin 362 8865 or email email@example.com to be added to the volunteer email list.
As I said earlier, the track can be walked, but care needs to be taken when doing so. Work is still happening in places—take care if people are at work and obey any signage that is in place. A large section of the track still does not have gravel on it and the Rotomahana mud layer can be quite slippery when it is wet.
