Tongariro Access 10 Tree Felling May-June 2016

I've received the following notification from Don McMurray at NZ Forest Managers. It affects part of the Access 10 run on the Tongariro. I've told Don to keep an eye out for paddlers on this run regardless of his requested closure but request please that you all respect their request in the interest of safety.

Cheers,
Shaun
WWNZ Safety Officer
