Description

This is the longest descent in the park and is between Kiwi Flow and Tuatara in difficulty. The top half is relatively mellow, but features some great berm corners. The bottom half edges towards grade 3 with faster sections and some tabletop jumps. The big bridge at the bottom of this trail was built with help from the staff and materials from the local ITM store on Haruru Falls Rd.

Trail name origin: Ruarangi (Roo – ah – rah – ng – ee) – Twin Skies – The Lands Prehistoric Name
Soak up the beautiful scenery. In the early morning look into the peaceful eastern horizon. Where the blue above joins the blue below, there you'll see the rays of sun shine light up the world, Te Hirihiri o Te Raa. Ruarangi is the name of an old house that once stood on the historic precinct of the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. Many centuries ago, a child named Te Raa was born within this house. It is recited by the grand elders that Te Raa is the founding ancestor of the Ngaati Raahiri tribe. The descendants of Te Raa exist today as caretakers of this land.
