Trail Trail 10
This is more an intermediate/light blue trail - corners are quite rocky, steep and tight compared with Tumeke. Surface is also rough and quite narrow in places. Beginners would likely prefer to go down 4WD track or will end up walking quite a few sections.

Long climb but a good route for fitness regularly. I imagine it's hectic on the weekend with all the walkers and runners so be careful I guess

Watch out for walkers who have come up from The Doctor and think it’s a continuation. The signage needs to be more explicit to prevent an accident.

Good track but the berms are a bit too small for my liking

For me personally, too much use of a digger and to much berms. No roots or other features.

For me, this track is easy and fun. A good balance of smooth and rough. The few jumps there are give good airtime. Would reccomend it for newbies.

So stoked to have this track in my neighborhood. Beautifully maintained, with new plantings and returning birds. Stunning trees, and gets you to the lookout for a ripper ride down. This track is far and away my favourite thing to do in Porirua.

Trail The Doctor
Mostly built, except for the lower 50m. This will be great fun, and an easy track to ride up and down a few times Smile Look out for the opening day!
