Fun fast track with a natural surface. The track splits half way down with the Intermediate/Advanced (Blue) line running on the right and the Expert Black) line running off to the left. The tracks rejoin and run out together. At the end take the left turn to head back to the car park and the right turn to head back into the park.

Built by Makara Peak volunteers in 1998 and 1999. Most of it was originally called Pylon 19.
