Crash Palace is the first piece of trail built on Rangituhi Trail Park, it is hard to describe its character as it has a few sections broken up with a 4x4 track.

It gets great raves by expert riders for technical thrills, which include drops, off-camber, roots and clay

On your first run down It will be hard to pick up all pieces of the trail and you will want to scope the big drop (With enough speed, it rolls a treat with a nice landing)

The first section crosses The Doctor and then drops onto Fenceline Road. After that you follow Fenceline road past (two roads that appear on the left) keep Right to pick up the next piece which from there Crash Palace is picked up by directly crossing.

Access Info

Farm Road Just past the top of fenceline road

Muddy and slippery as you might expect for winter conditions. Still very ride-able and fun.

reporter Watch out on the first corner, dusty and loose as, looks as if a lot of people haven't been able to make the corner. Will not want to roll into...
