Starting at the Old Coach Road in Johnsonville and finishing in Owhiro Bay.

This track is a solid day's undertaking and almost all off road using a mixture of single track, farm trails and old 4WD tracks. On a good day it's truly epic, on a bad day it's also epic but possibly in a worse way depending on how much you like to suffer.

If you need food en route, the easiest spot is the dairy opposite the entrance to Sth Karori Rd. Water can be topped up in the Makara Peak car park, otherwise you're on your own until the end.

      Has held up really well over the winter, especially given how much use it gets.

      A little damp in places as is expected in winter, but the lower (newer) half is running perfectly reporter
