Mauao base track closure update

Most of the Mauao base track will be reopened today, following a slip caused by bad weather on Saturday, 2 September.  

The slip area, near North West rock on the Matakana side of the mountain, will remain closed while the debris is cleared. The full loop is expected to be open again by this weekend.
