At the upper limit of the grade, Loam Ranger lives up to its name as it drops, literally, down through the exotic forest through a number of switchbacks, dropping corners and fast paced descents. With easy access and just being soooo damn good, will see you back around to do it all again.

Access Info

From the Sharlands carpark, head along Sharlands Road towards the range before turning right up Central Road, past the forestry gate to the 4km marker. Trail start is approximately 10m along Maitai Face Road.
