Leaving the Twin Bridges you encounter a right hand bend with a left wall easily negotiated but can be troublesome for newbies at higher flows. Easy Class II down to overhead wire bridge then onto sharp right bend about 3km down. This is Maoribank Rapid and has several bedrock features and chutes to negotiate. This can be Class III depending on flows. Can be portaged generally in a variety of ways. Another km down you pass beneath the Totara Park road bridge then there may be several small drops/waves before you pass the Whakatikei Stream confluence on river right (easily missed) then very soon you are at the take out (river left). This is a popular swimming spot so expect to see people and maybe even a dog or two.
Beware of willows and old riverworks.
