Event Location
There are a variety of routes to get to this venue so I do not intend to try and sign post them. The simplest is if traveling from Rotorua;Turn right at the top of the Control Gates Hill, before Taupo Town, into Poihipi RoadThe forest is just over 12 ks along the Road, 2.8ks past the Kinloch Turnoff on the left and 1.8 ks past the Tuhingamata Turn off.From places North, from State Highway 1 turn right into Oruanui Road, ( there is a sign to an effluent disposal site), proceed past Forest Road and turn right into Tuhingamata Road, then right into Poihipi Road.

Event Information

This is an interesting small area that we have previously used. The forest has been harvested, and the area sprayed and replanted. The trees are between 1 and 4 metres high and visibility is good.
However there is considerable slash to negotiate. Blackberry is not a significant problem but I recommend full leg coverage. Most of the planted area is variable walk. Therefore the course lengths will be shorter.
The views from the hilltops to the lake and mountains are great, so I have thoughtfully placed a couple of controls there for you all to appreciate.

The red and orange courses will be classic, but due to the terrain there will be a combined yellow/white choose your own course, based around the tracks.
