A stunning downhill run with fantastic ocean views over Taylors Mistake.
A well formed down hill track with smooth flowing berms that let you corner at speed. Some great sections that twist and turn and require a decent amount of concentration. Look out for the 1-2 foot jumps off to the side of the track.

Access Info

From Sumner, head up Evans Pass Road. At the saddle turn left onto Godley Head Road. Travel approx 4.5 km east along the road to Breezes Col. You can ride up the Captain Thomas Track and then ride the Godley Head track to Breezes Col for extended off road action.
