Forestry operations will start up in the Redwoods, Whakarewarewa Forest from 12 JANUARY 2017.

This map gives you a heads up on what is happening in the greater Whakarewarewa Forest. Schedules have changed a little so they will be finishing off work in the Windy Road area starting the 9th Jan and then moving into the Pipeline area the following week, all going well.

Check out the alternative mountain bike riding routes and Whakarewarewa (black) walking track diversion.

If you want to head out on the mountain bike shuttle check in on their website or facebook page for updates as to where they will be operating as they will be using two different routes depending on forestry activity and road access… Southstar shuttles

Main take away message is to look out for and obey all signage and security staff. They are there for your safety! Also remember trucks will be operating so give way to them…they are much bigger than you!

Happy summer holidays everyone, enjoy the forest – stay alert and stay safe.

Maps below will be available from the Redwoods I-Site, Mountain Bike Rotorua @ the Waipa carpark and pretty much all bike shops. Head in to one of these places for up to date info and assistance.
