      Fringed Hill Road begins at Tantragee Saddle and can be accessed from Brook Valley or Maitai Valley.


      In the Brook Valley there is a car park at the start of Tantragee Road, just across the bridge across The Brook. There is also street parking a kilometre further down the valley, at the start of Codgers Track. Both of these start points are only a 10-15 min ride from the city centre. If you intend to ride Te Ara Koa, Brook Valley is the best start point.

      In the Maitai Valley, there are two car parks on each respective side of Maitai Motor Camp. Maitai River Walkway provides a good connection directly to the city centre, which is a 15-20 min ride. If you are using Fringed Hill to access Black Diamond Ridge and Sunrise Ridge, Maitai Valley is the best start point.

      Logging, and high fire risk in summer will close access.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      eBikes Allowed: Yes
