Single track begins on a smooth, well worn track surface. Through the middle section of the ride there are some rocky technical sections with large bluff drops to watch out for. Further on a sign indicates a new section of track that turns away downhill on the right. The old lower section has been retired due to rockfall issues.

The track descends and then turns left, and the last section is just above a stream. The track crosses the stream, and then it’s a short ride to the end at Upper Sumnervale Drive. You can continue further down and exit at the playground at the end of Lower Sumnervale Drive.

This is a popular track with walkers and runners so please give way and control your speed. This track offers great views directly into Sumner and out of over the coast.

Access Info
