High Point

An Advanced grade loop taking you out to the wilds of Makara Peak.

Harder than an Intermediate grade due to Upper Leaping Lizard and Leaping Lizard. This loop (riding back to the car park along Sth Karori Rd), takes you out to the quieter southern end of the park where the old school rugged trails are. If Leaping Lizard was just too much fun, head back up Possum Bait Line (physically hard uphill track), tack on Nikau out to Missing Link and head back up again.
