High Point

A really good descent with Slip Saddle being the highlight. Ride up the XC track to the top of Coronet then ride all the way down to Arrowtown. Lots of river crossings on Bush Creek so you will get wet feet.

      Dry for the first 1/3 or so, gets wetter as you go down but more-or-less in great shape. Some slightly muddy sections but no big deal. Lots of creek crossings will get you wet!
