Cyclone Gita created an immense amount of damage in the Takaka and Motueka areas. Of special note for trampers were the slips and other damage closing the Graham Valley Road up to the Flora Saddle carpark, and major damage on the road into the Cobb Reservoir. If you are planning a trip into those areas in the next few months, check with DOC Motueka as to the status of these roads.

Here is a link to photos of the damage on the Cobb Road.
