|Owen, Phil and Tom went out in the snow to paddle the Ohinepango and Waihohonu (silly central plateau ditches) and ran Moawhango Falls (easy 7-8m park'n'huck) on the way home. We wanted to run Huka but was running at 180 cumecs; I'll probably never get round to running it now.|
To find Moawhango Falls follow the gravel Moawhango Valley road a few km north (upstream) from the bridge over a deep gorge on the Moawhango on the Taihape-River valley road (downstream of the other 3 Moawhango valley bridges). The falls are across a field below a whiteish cliff with poplar trees along the road and pine trees along the river. Some other falls (on a side stream) are signed further upstream--they are about 12m high without much water going over them. Apparently the rest of the river is grade 1-2.
