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.

Fresh slip around the tops, and a big one at that. Having hiking experience I climbed through the trees that are on the slip
