This is the flattest and easiest loop at Makara Peak with mostly wide trails with good site lines and gentle gradients. It’s a great way to get into mountain biking without having to do much climbing - allowing riders to focus on bike handling and basic skills.

Starting at the entrance at the end of Allington Road, head along Rimu, turn right onto Miro and follow the signs pointing to Lazy Fern. Miro undulates along and up to the four wheel drive track (Snakecharmer), which you cross before heading along Big Tom’s Wheelie for 200m. Exit right onto the four wheel drive track at the intersection with SWIGG and head up to the start of Magic Carpet which loops back to the end of Big Tom’s Wheelie.

From there, head up the 4WD track parallel to Big Tom’s Wheelie to the container, were you go back down Miro to Rimu and exit onto Allington Road.
