High Point

A bit more of a challenge for the youngest riders, you will need to be on a proper mountain bike with gears as this loop has a reasonable climb in it.
From the Scotts Rd car park head into Ice Breaker and wind your way around to where it meets Riff Raff, a short switchback climb up to the Container Hub and a good resting point before Mr Twister. Across the road from the hub Mr Twister starts, zoom down through the berms till it joins Jack and the Beanstalk for the big climb back up to the top. Follow Jack and the Beanstalk all the way up, crossing Farside Rd just before the last short climb to the seat on Arapuke Rd. a good place to stop and check out the views across the Kahuterawa valley. Now head left for the last short climb on Arapuke Rd up to About time, follow About time all the way down to the bottom where it crosses the stream and shortly after joins Ice Breaker. Follow Ice Breaker back up to the start of Riff Raff and turn left out to Arapuke Rd, roll down the hill towards the Scotts Rd car park and Swamp Monster starts on your left for a fun blast back to your starting point.
