Switchback is a two way track but it is a good way to get back up the hill quickly. It is a tough grind but better then going all the way out to go back up Zip. Down it is as its name says lots of tight switchbacks with a steep decent.

** You must have a pass to ride in Eskdale MTB Park please respect this and purchase a season pass from their web site or a temporary pass from Napier Information Centre or from Napier's Local bike stores or the BayView 4Square $10 for 3 weeks **
