Smasher is a steep, hand made, challenging but fun singletrack downhill trail through pine woods. It drops approx 320m from the Codgers riding area onto the Maitai Valley Road. It features a lot of steep off-camber but is very well made, with good catches in the corners. There are two jumps (that can be avoided) and a rock roll (can also be avoided). It is a grade 4/5. Not recommended in the wet.

Access Info

You need a Hancock Forest Permit to ride in this area. Temporary (2 week) permits can be purchased from bike shops in Nelson for $10 or come as part of membership to Nelson Mountain Bike Club (www.nelsonmtb.club)
