A second medium loop option 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 left and head out on to Goat Rock (you'll pass more bee hives). Turn right on Goat Rock and about 10 meters further along is the entrance to Taniwha.

Take Taniwha and Bee Line down to Station Drive. When on Station Drive take a right and on to G-Drop. Then descend back to the entrance to Station Link.

      Random horse has been slashed out all along. Ferns are close but they're friendly. Some wet muddy areas, the big ruts near the end before the stream crossing have been repaired somewhat. Also cleared after the stream at the end.

      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.
