A new trail mainly digger built by TrailPro during early winter 2017. Their work in the park during this period was funded by grants from the TSB Community Trust and the New Zealand Community Trust.

It starts at the very northern end of the park off the main gravel road and heads you back to the south west through undulations and around trees. It eventually doubles back to head north and climbing up via switchbacks you come out almost opposite the entrance to Kahore Tau.

A few corners are a bit greasy. The corner with that lake is also a bit wet.

One of the early flat switchbacks had a significant pond of water, drainage overload I think from the recent heavy rain. Slumping section not...

Riding well after the wind has dried it out. Great track. One short section slumping and needs some retaining to keep the track's width OK.
