Topo50 maps show tracks that have been permanently closed to prevent the spread of kauri dieback disease.
On the Maratoto side, access the track from Wires Rd, off Maratoto Rd. From the Wentworth side, access the track from Wentworth Valley Rd.
Before you go into the outdoors, tell someone your plans and leave a date and time to raise the alarm if you haven't returned. To do this, use the New Zealand Outdoors Intentions process on the AdventureSmart website. It is endorsed by New Zealand's search and rescue agencies and provides three simple options to tell someone you trust the details about your trip.
