Trail shared by Almonzo Wilder

A muddy rutted mess that connects the Nichols Creek and Swampy Ridge Tracks

Description

The Moon Track connects the upper end of the Nichols Creek Switchback Track with Swampy Ridge Track, opening up some outstanding loop opportunities near Dunedin. Unfortunately, Moon Track is a mess of mud and largely unenjoyable riding. The good news is that construction of the upper extension of the shingled Nichols Creek Switchback Track is well underway. When complete this should allow riders to bypass the Moon Track altogether and make for some great longer rides from Leith Valley.
