Short easy track that skips around the west side of Makara Peak summit. Handy on windy days. Changed in 2019 to two-way to enable riders climbing Zac's track to get to the summit on single track via the recently extended Aratihi.

Access Info

Starts on left hand side of 4wd track just above Aratihi on the way to the summit. Finishes at the junction of Zacs track (drops down to the left to join Varleys or Vertigo) and the link track (up to the right) that takes you around to the start of North Face, T3 and Trickle Falls.
