@gaiters is spot on. I avoid the Kawekas during the roar, way too many idiots with guns around. Having said that, if you head north towards Kaweka North there's a ...
This has just come from the NZ4WD association. There is more information at http://www.stratford.govt.nz/images/Agendas/Annual-Plan-2017-18---Website-DRAFT.pdf and http://www.stratford.govt.nz/images/District_Plan/Stratford-2035-Future-of-Whangamomona.pdf It affects trampers and mountain bikers as much as 4wders.
