New exit out to South Karori Road from the bottom Leaping Lizard for those who don't want to have to climb back up into the park via Possum Bait Line. Makes Leaping Lizard a much more appealing prospect.

Built by the Makara Peak Supporters and several corporate work parties over 2014.

Access Info

From the bottom of Leaping Lizard and at the start of Possum Bait Line. Alternatively, you can grovel up it from South Karori Road. Look out for the bollard with the sign towards the end of the road. It crosses private property and close to a house so please respect the land owners.
