A medium loop starting with Station Link, riding through new pine up on to Station Drive (part of the Rimutaka Cycle trail).

Turn left on to Station Drive and ride along part of the original railway line connecting Wellington with the Wairarapa until 1954.

Continue riding until you arrive at a T-Intersection, and take a right. Look out for the marked entrance to 2 Bee Line on the right hand side (not on the trail signage the trails that can be joined to from that trail).

Head up 2 Bee Line. There are bee hives off this trail, but keep calm, and keep riding and you'll be as sweet as the honey that is being produced from the surrounding manuka forests.

At the top of 2 Bee Line take a right onto Bees 2 Bridge. Bees 2 Bridge is an intermediate trail. It is a fun and flowy hand built track descending through pine and punga forest.

At the end of Bees 2 Bridge hang a left back down Station Drive to the entrance of G-Drop. Then descend back to the entrance to Station Link.

Work on last fast left hander before the drop completed. Should hopefully drain better and allow riders to hold a bit more speed without fear of disappearing over the back of the berm into the bush in the wet.

Easy option is now ready to ride turn left just as you enter the pine forest. Longer but not as steep or technical, an enjoyable uphill through the pines. Wet in some places even on a dry day.

Mostly dry a few mud patches, the last quarter of the trail at the top is more challenging as its steeper with rocks and a few slippery clay sections that add to the challenge.

All Good I rode up the glider club road then onto this road, which I followed down to the start of the beeline and Taniwha trails. A nice wide road which is smooth in very good condition.
