All kayakers please respect the current closure of access road to Kakapotahi for logging. The road to the upper is private ie we usually use it at the goodwill of the owner. Logging will continue for about three months, so until February 2017, but there will be a period over Christmas when the road will be open so long as PF Olsen have no other security concerns. During this time, please use the road with caution and show absolute respect to any forestry machinery or processes. Any questions please contact PF Olsen in Greymouth on .
