Start at Opouri Saddle end and ride the Opouri Bridle Track for an extra bit of technical downhill, or head into Duncan Bay and start from there.

Rock and root riddled track leading you over the Nydia Saddle at 370m and into Nydia Bay. You then head inland through farmland before heading over a second saddle, Kaiuma at 387m.

This is a technical ride which can take between 4-7 hours to ride. The track finishes on Kaiuma Bay Rd, 16km's from State Highway 6 and another 3km's to Havelock.

Intermediate riders will enjoy the track more in the north to south direction, Advanced riders in the south to north. It is 98% rideable north to south, whilst much less so south to north. In the wet it is mostly unrideable either direction
