Yep, the creek is on Kawhia Rd, between Te Mata and Kawhia. (turn left at the road to Bridal Veil Falls).
The creek is fine, just be careful on the second crossing, as the rocks are very slimey.
The bridge may be impassable by the time CCA rocks around. (I'm guessing the deck timbers will be lifted).
I'm heading down to the CCA also, and plan to catch up with Clint etc at Ohakune.
Some type of general ride can be worked out I'm sure.

A guy I know went across that collapsed bridge with an RT. Has it become easier to cross it since? I want to go down that way to get to the CCA.
I've seen a Toyota Corona drive through it if that's any help

I've seen Toyota Corodas do all sorts of things that I wouldn't do on a bike. They make great hunting vehicles :-).

Have you finalized your route yet? Garry seems to be refusing me insider information.

Hopefully Clint can knock up a ride report for us.
I'm on ride report duties this time. I've only just been given the photos, so I'll try to get it started today.
