    Thanks for your awesome guidebooks, they have been my bible for the last few weeks. I just found this other site though.. Looks like these guys ripped off your work, unless you licensed it to them… http://www.westcoastrailtrail.com/local-information/activities/arahura-river-cesspools-walk.56/
    Booooo.

    Feb 17, 2017. Great hike with no one there or on the trail. Got about 1 km from gate before road was washed out. Parked camper on side of road and walked the rest. Lots of large mud areas to navigate along the remaining road to end. About 50m from the obvious end of road, you’ll see the large orange DOC triangle to the left and the trail up to the bridge. After the bridge you can hike further along the river with some access points to it along the way.
