Uphill link track from Chestnut Road to Moerangi Road. Used as an alternative to climbing Hill Road and either Frontal Lobotomy trail or Moerangi/Tawa Roads to gain elevation. The long flat section is double track, which narrows to singletrack as it starts to climb. The main climb is slippery hard-pack clay, which can be mossy. When it's dry - no worries. When it's wet, you'll need to pick a few good lines to maintain traction.
