High Point

Nice pedal loop from Arrowtown. Can also be started on Coronet Peak station rd where Hot Rod ends but Arrowtown has good pubs
Starts with a cruisy spin on Malaghans RD (soon to be replaced by trail in 2021/22) then a steady climb up Dan o Connell track to the water race and then most of your climbing is done. Easy Undulating pedal accross the water race track with great views and then a nice descent down Bush Creek back to Arrowtown.

Allow 1-2 hours

Avoid in Winter as it gets really sloppy and slow going and the trail will get damaged.
