Tarawera River Hazards

We entered the forest and paddled the three sections of river from the concrete bridge nearest to the Tarawera falls, down to the Fentons Mill Road and Tarawera Road connection bridge.
The top and bottom sections are fine but would strongly recommend giving the middle section down to the metal bridge a miss as there were at least 4 river wide pine tree strainers to carefully negotiate or portage and many overhanging willow trees etc.
