An alternative to the grade 4 Upper Tumeke you can ride a short distance down Boundary Road to Tumeke opposite the top of The Doctor.

Not sure where to start? Park at the Raiha Street gate

Ride Spicer link to The Doctor which will climb you part way up the hill. From there make your way up Farm road (up a steep gravel road) to Chimney Sweep which you can bomb down and enjoy the views. Currently there is nothing linking Chimney to Tumeke but a grassy 4x4 road with a few features on the side.

Short pedal up the hill takes you to Upper Tumeke which will be the trail of the day for everyone.

At the bottom you pop out very close to the car park where you can enjoy another lap or call it a day
