Existing access to the multi-day Waiatoto River is under threat by new access arrangements outlined in DoC's Mount Aspiring National Park Draft Management Plan (PDF, 760K). The plan intends to limit Waiatoto trips to maximum of 12 people and only the period 15 October to 31 December.
Apparently a permit system is being enforced for access through the Kaingaroa Forest to sections such as the Jeff's Joy run on the Rangitaiki river. The forest is managed by Timberlands and permits can be obtained from Independent Security Consultants Ltd. (ISCL). Timberlands provide data on forest access and permits.
