“A very steep, rooty, technical trail with some very tight sections through trees.”— Alan Eskrick
After an exhilarating 160m descent, the trail drops into a broad saddle and the start of an energetic 30m climb to where the mountain bike track turns left off the walking track. There is a white marker post at the turnoff.
From here, the trail climbs gradually, sidling a broad ridge for 600m before starting the last 300m descent to the Korere–Tophouse Road. This part of the trail was built by the MTB Trails Trust to bypass the lower part of the walking track which was unrideable. The trail is not as steep as the previous descent, but there are numerous switchbacks as the trail descends a broad ridge before heading off the west side of the ridge with some fun sections down to the road.
This trail will bring a big smile to your face, especially if you clean it.
