Pondy New creates a wonderful loop connecting Split Enz and Pondy Downhill to Rollercoaster. After a short by steady climb in it's all flowy gentle downhill except for the very end where it climbs up to join onto the end of Rollercoaster.

There are large sections of this you can just pump - and lay of the brakes if you carry momentum. Getting this right from corner to corner is a great feeling.

The last section is relatively tricky and technical - a short root-infested climb and descent, a few rocks, then a narrow bridge followed a couple of climbs to where the trail connects to the last part of Rollercoaster.

It is a favorite for many and is a great complement to the style of the immensely popular Split Enz trail.

 the tricky rooty section has a bypass now if you don't want to tackle it, and the rocky section is much easier.
