Meet at Papakura BP Autobarn SH1 car park.

9.00am Departure time ~ in convoy to the forest via New World Car Park at Waiuku (to pick up others)

We expect the conditions in the forest to be Grade #2, so good A/T tyres are fine or muddies (if you have them)

Sand  &/or clay based, with a little mud  -any obsticle area can be driven around.

Polaris (Woodhill) 4wd Park Run

Grade 2, but if enough people show up, we could probably split into 2 groups for a gnarly run and a shinier or less experienced group.

There are several new trails to explore, and Roger has been busy grading and removing stumps with a bulldozer, so there are plenty of options and the drivability is as good as it has ever been.

Woodhill Patrol

Please contact Brett Barker ( or 021-724309) if you're keen to join in.

These patrols are a good way to gain experience.

4 vehicles per Patrol.

Grade 3; Winch optional - but check with Brett (2 vehicles must have winches).
Tyres: Minimum ATs, MTs preferred (Silvers/Simex not necessary)
Radio: UHF essential

Meet: at 4WD Park at 09:45 each day
End: About 17:00 when all public have left.
