“An "old-style" trail that keeps any rider on their toes as it winds its way down through luxuriant native bush.”— Alan Eskrick
This is a great trail to improve bike handling skills without anything dangerous, but it will take a skilled rider to keep up momentum and make this track flow. Many riders have to take a few breaks on the way down this trail because of the concentration required.
Magnificent native beech forest and abundant bird life are features of the trail. Mid-way down, the trail winds across a small plateau featuring some surprisingly tight turns before starting a steeper descent to the bottom.
The start of the trail is accessed from either the west end of Big Bush Track or from the top of Kaka Track.
