Sheridan Creek

Sunday 22/11/2015

Day trip with Tariga to go visit the log hauler up Sheridan Creek on our way to my Dads birthday.
Our Feet Stuff
Parked at the end of the Otaki Gorge Road and followed the Waiotauru track to just passed Sheridan creek.

A lot of rain lately. We had no trouble crossing the Waiotauru river and heading off up Sheridan Creek. We went up on the true left, not knowing there was a bit of an OT track on the true right.

 In and out of the river and getting to a deeper place we discovered the track on the true right, time was short and the water was deep so we left it for another day. One thats hot with low water levels.
Crossing opposite the Otaki Forks campsite was a bit trickier as the river was narrower and the current was more pushy.
