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.

Boggy and muddy up top then constant stream crossings then overgrown leg slapping grass. Very wet from lack of drainage, (we've had dry weather lately)

Non stop skidding in thick dust. Some deep rutting. Then once you exit onto Bush Creek that trail is a little overgrown and constant mud and stream crossing.
