This trail has a few jumps and steeper sections which have alternative routes. It gives a great route through Hikowai which can be a maze! There are lots of side tracks but some are dead ends!
Do not ride in the winter after a frost as becomes very sloppy. If you want to ride at this time of year do so first thing before the frost lifts or you may end up spending more time cleaning your bike than riding!
