Yea I was along there a few weeks back, it's really overgrown now with gorse and broom.

Heres how it looked when me and Taz went along the track a few months back, this was one of the clearer sections



Still, Port Underwood is as pleasant as ever:

Calling South Island guides
No don't plan it for next summer - plan it for this time next year - when the weathers better

I'll start working on increasing my speed

Pete show us a pic from the end of the head then I'll be envious

The road must've been a lot less rutted than our ride up there

You should come on our next ride. You could carry our supplies in those panniers.

Na we did the walk up top the two damns up Essons Valley today, bloody lovely weather for it.

Also took the truck over Port Underwood and around towards Tumbledown Bay yesterday, the road has taken a hammering but it was smooth and a little muddy.
It'd be awesome fun on the bike

We went to the dog show for a while and then drove out to Marfell Beach for a walk. I am looking forward to exploring the Port Underwood area.
