This trail is shared with walkers and is uphill-only for mountainbikers. The initial section is rolling, through mainly eucalypt forest, with twists and turns and occasional roots. Then after the junction with the end of Box of Birds Trail it climbs steadily, with some pinch climbs and rooty patches to keep you on your toes, and enters a long gully where the forest changes to native species and the occasional pine. Watch for the little ornaments hidden at various points alongside the track. The trail then crosses Tokorangi Pa Road and continues climbing through Douglas Fir and eucalypts, and finishes at a link road joining Tokorangi Pa and Katore Roads.

Access Info

The easiest way to find the start of this trail is to ride from Longmile Ave up the grass berm on the right-hand side of Tarawera Rd until Selwyn Rd intersection, then turn right from the gravel carpark to enter the forest on the Waitawa Link walking track. A few metres after entering the forest turn left onto the trail crossing Waitawa Link and follow this for around 100 metres until you get to the As You Do sign on your right.

       Very technical climb, I would not class that as a Grade 3. It is more like a Grade 4 climb
