This is the main track into the park. It runs from the carpark on South Karori Road all the way up to either carry on along Sally Alley or cross the 4WD track to the top of SWIGG and Lazy Fern. You can exit the Koru about 2/3 along to get to the Skills Area. The route is planned to be a gentle grade all the way - suitable for novice riders. For most riders it is an easy route up into the park. This is already the most popular ride in the park!
Built by Makara Peak volunteers and WCC contractors in 1999/2000, and opened by the then Minister of Sport and Recreation, Tevor Mallard. The section between the skills area exit and Sally Alley was built by the Salvation Army Rimutaka Prison Conservation Corps in one week in May 2000.

|reporter Dry again after the rain. Fern fronds have gone bananas in the warm wet weather and there's a bit of debris about after the high winds. Nothing...|
