An advanced track with a rocky finish.

Overview

Dogs: Off-leash

Description

Head east from the intersection with the Big Bush Track and Rocky Horror Track to ride through a mossy, sometimes damp track to open clearings on the top of the ridge. After the clearings, the trail turns south into manukas then beech forest. The trail is narrow with roots and rocks to navigate. Boggy areas have had matting laid and there are two small streams to cross that have culverts.

Tight and narrows sections will test a rider's skills as the trail winds down through a couple of clearings to emerge on a rock outcrop where views of Lake Rotoiti and the skating pond campground are obtained.

The last 1,312 ft (400m) after the lookout will put a smile on most advanced rider's faces as the trail descends an old morraine with steep, tight, rocky corners, and narrow sidles before emerging on Teetotal Flat at the top of Skating Pond Loop's lollipop stalk.
