It's a short steady climb in from the Katore Rd. entrance to where the Eastern Spice and Tokorangi Pa trails feed in, then mainly a descent through mature pines.

Turkish Delight crosses Soakhole track a couple of times - the junctions are well-sighted and sign-posted.
Do take care - the surface is looser volcanic soil than other trails in the area. Great in wet weather because it drains so fast, loose in dry weather because moisture doesn't hold in the soil at all and parts become like riding on marbles.

The exit gets a little steeper and rootier before delivering you onto Nursery Rd.

Access Info

Most often ridden after descending on Eastern Spice or Tokorangi Pa trails (they both lead into Turkish Delight). There is also an entrance opposite the waste water treatment ponds on Katore Road - most riders that use this access point have got there by climbing up Lion trail.
