April 2019 - Construction Commences.
The new Otaketake trail is underway turning right, north away from the lake about 2.5 km from Kinloch on the Kawakawa Bay trail. The trail will exit on to Kawakawa Road, a short distance from the Orakau carpark on Whangamata Rd.
The trail rises steadily towards some steep bluffs and has some great views east over Kinloch. Some new staff on board and some obstinate rocks to be dealt with.
