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.

Wide trail that's all clear, good in dry conditions but the clay base can be really slippery when wet. A good steep drop at the bottom into a table-top for those that like a challenge.

I always ride this one last haha with technical rocky creek crossings and mud bogs all year round which my dog thinks are awesome. Otherwise all clear the top is very good condition and even gravelled, but around the middle section watch for deep erosion ruts.

Great way to ride to the top of the bike park trails from the top of station road. Running nice and dry with a few flatter terraces that help keep the heart rate in check. A good challenge past the rusty drum to get over up the clay section.

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.

Very dry forest service road, runs along the old railway line route so mostly constant grade. Some steeper sections up near the top. Great easy access track to the other singletrack trails dropping off it like gdrop, timestables and lower pig track.
