One of a series of ‘teaser’ trip pages for those heading to the 2017 NZ Packrafting Meetup. Thanks to Hugh Canard for the information. I’m hopeful that the Meetup will result in a little more info plus a few photos so we can expand these pages.
Boyle River (II+) from Boyle Village to Windy Point
You can start directly from Boyle village, or the highway bridge. Class I, II and II+ rapids in short gorges.
The take out is at Windy Point, where there is a swingbridge. The track from the swing bridge is the Windy Point track which leads east to the highway, and west to the Hope Valley.
Visual at Boyle Lodge bridge.
Below is a video, showing the paddling on the lower half of this run, below Engineers Camp.
