Description

From Big Ring Boulevard, the initially gravel road drops down to and crosses the Whakatikei River. Expect to get at least wet feet crossing the river, which is quite wide though shallow (at least after a period of dry weather).

The road then runs roughly parallel with the river, climbing up a bit and rolls on down to a major intersection as described below. Along the way, the road surface is a mix of gravel, bare dirt, and exposed bedrock.

Getting there

Southeastern end meets Big Ring Boulevard at an obvious T-intersection.

Northwestern end meets a sign-posted intersection with the southern end of Hydro Valley Road and the northern end of Hydro Road. The intersection is also marked with a sign that says "Hydro Valley".
