Yeah still can, you can either do the track in reverse (enter from kumara end) or follow the forrestry roads from the Camerons road turn off. I was in there weekend before last. Tracks are pretty tame. Went the whole way through with a broken hub, no problems.

Yeah they still there. They pretty tame these days, there also another set of holes which are a but better. As you go past the first set, cross the creek and as you get to the river bed clearing there are off to the left up in the bush. There a couple of sill killers, and tail light smashers in there.

thanks

You can go in from the Greenstone end and go through until you come out onto a large forestry road about half way through. Get out by hooking a left and following the forestry roads out to Camerons.
A call to Olsens Forestry would let you know if the rest of the track through has been reopened through the forestry.
