Kairaki is one of our few remaining local sand dune maps. The sand formations provide lots of challenge with some very technical areas. Mature pine forest covers the intricate contour detail of the dunes, which are complex and unpredictable. A well-developed track network criss-crosses the map, offering fast routes through the dunes, however some small blocks of denser forest will try to push those off-line that are bold enough to go straight.
