This narrow track sidles from the top of Varley's Track to the top of Makara Peak. It is a solid climb or a fun descent in calm weather with a rocky surface in open grass and low scrub.

This track was built mostly by the late Zac (Ian Pearson) with help from the Makara Peak Supporters in 2000.

Reasonable condition up top. Grass getting long down in the lower half and is going to need a trim in the next couple of weeks.

Wet and slushy in a lot of places but riding well as it doesn't receive a heap of traffic.
