Starts from the top of Tawa end on Moerangi Rd. Sweet flowing downhill singletrack.
Downhill craziness that feels extreme but isn’t, if you can get up to it the Billy is the best. I can't believe riders are rating this as a 3! This trail is so sweet I could kiss it. It rides particularly well in the spring after the trail has dried a bit and before the summer sun bakes it to dust. There are so many lines you want to ride it again and again, plus it provides a great connection to Moerangi then to Loop Rd and Split Enz.
It's not super technical - give it a smack.
