This is a fast but relativity easy piece of single track through the bush. It starts off the Goat Rock (Four Climbs) forestry road.

Riders should keep and eye out for the tree across track not far past the Bees to Bridge intersection. You can get under it while still on the bike and at speed, so long as you use the deep rut on the left side of the track. Keep in mind this off camber section is all clay based, so is slippery as hell in wet conditions.

There are two groups off working Bee Hives on this trail, hence the name 2 Bee Line. First is just prior to the Bees 2 Bridge intersection, and the second about 3/4 of the way down. Usual story, don't piss off the Bees and they won't piss you off.

      Wet and slippery on the way up. No standing water in the usual spots off the side of the track, so probably a bit drier than it has been...

      VERY WET - significant moisture and mud on the track. No real hazards of any sort but a very difficult ride uphill. I imagine it would be...

      In good condition, a good way to get up to the top for taniwha linking into 250 east, for a good loop.

      Mostly dry, the last bit near top is a little slick on the clay but doable.
