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.

Trail Fairies have been out in force on this one. It's now finally dry enough to ride up.

Prepare for a face full of gorse and Toi Toi branches. Overgrown in places.

Lots of surface water, making the hard packed clay sections pretty slick.

Wet and slippery in some places but still quite rideable. Rode it from bottom to top then linked onto Taniwha.
