Then they have jacked around for a couple of years sorting out a management plan and consulting. OK, it is a good outcome in the end, but at how much cost and hassle? This whole management consulting exercises seem to be taking up a lot of DOC's time and money. Where is the fun of just going out and exploring? Nice touch on the cleaning the wheels because of didymo.
The whole thing smacks of PC gone crazy

the heaphy is a good example. The track pretty m uch follows a paper road, but DOC in all its wisdom have decided bikes aren't allowed.
