There are number of large fallen trees along this section of the track. Reports show 3 large trees are laying across the track between Kokoda and Isurava. Between Alola and Isurava there is a total of 6 fallen trees, and another 3 large trees between Alola and Iora Creek.
Bridge Crossings and Landslips
