Anyone have any beta on what's in the deep gorge next to the main highway as it drops through this gorge from Tamaranui towards Stratford?

where u cross the bridge by the memorial on down to the last take out at the bridge on the kahuratai road it is grade 2 with trees and snags but nice bush scenery .From the take out bridge you can paddle on out to the Wanganui river.Grahamn Egarr has a description in his nth island river guide.From memory no real white water but a great wilderness trip
