Description

This is a short track off the main Spicer Forest route. It doesn't lead anywhere (gate to private property), but clearly would be the road if Ohariu Valley Road is ever joined up to Broken Hill Road. It is wide, and provides a short but interesting diversion from the main Spicer Forest trail. From the Spicer Forest track this route leads downhill through a reasonably gentle gradient and out of the forest.

NOTE that access to this track is currently closed to the public - see notes on Spicer Forest track page. A temporary alternate route for the Te Aroha walkway section has been marked leading down the Ohariu valley floor section of Spicer Forest to meet the top of Ohariu Valley Road. There are a number of stream crossings and beware of stinging nettle on this alternate route.
