Fun technical track, starts with open ridgeline, with clay ruts, then drops into a valley in trees. Sharp switchbacks and a few steeper drops. Tree roots and clay are slippery when wet.

Built by J'Ville Cycles, YMCA Conservation Corps and Wellington mountain bikers in 1999/2000.

Access Info

From Makara Peak Summit ride down Zac's (on west side of hill) to join this track, or ride T3 to the start of the track.

WCC contractors are currently trimming the track so the cut veg is all over the track surface. Take it easy until it's cleared up.

Riding like a tricky grade 4 at the moment. Awesome track, gets less traffic than it deserves.
