Super fun, fast and loose with the a few techie sections thrown in. Starting high on Kaka ridge with views over Nelson and the Maitai, the trail drops across open country with step downs and rollers before entering the pine forest with loose rock and roots and a super fast flowy finish. Good times on AM and DH bikes alike.
