No More Beersies - Teetotal Flats Recreation Area.
This network of tracks is open to walkers, runners, mountain bikers, hunters etc. Nice mix of river flats & native bush, easy climbs and rocky descents.
The route is a clockwise loop using the Skating Pond, Kaka, Sidewinder, Flying Moa, Big Bush, Rocky Horror & Skating Pond trails
From the campsite enter the marked trail after checking the big map at the trail head. All track junctions are well marked.

Pick up the Skating pond loop (you want to be on the hill side not the river side of this looping track) and follow on the cruisy river flats to the Kaka junction.
Turn right and briefly follow Kaka until you hit Sidewinder where you turn left.
Follow Sidewinder to the intersection with Flying Moa. Turn right here & follow Flying Moa to the top of the hill.
At the top of the hill turn right again and follow Big Bush as it undulates for a couple of kms.
Ignore the Duck Down Track to your left, continue on & then head down Rocky Horror for the highlight of the run. This is a moderately steep gully with lots of loose rock and a few slick clay sections, before easing back to the river flats and back to the Skating Pond Loop where you turn left & head back to the start.

    Very patchy.

    Short-sleeved thermal top, Windproof jacket, Gloves, Beanie/thermal headwear, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.

    Water at the start although it does say to boil for 3 mins!

    We arrived shortly after cyclone Gita had been around which meant no mountain biking due to lots of wind damaged trees plus the trails being way to wet to ride.
    I have guessed at the expected normal run times due to the difficult conditions when running. There were around 20 trees blocking tracks, ankle deep mud in some spots and knee deep water in others. It took me 1.37 hrs where I would expect just over an hour under normal conditions. Probably why It was still the best run I'd done in a while :)

    Mountain bikers, hunters.
