Not like anything else in the region, with 14 bermed switchbacks and many other bends, berms rollers and tables it is sure to live up to its name and be a blast Blaster was originally designed to be the "final blast" trail three of three in the lookout descent from the top of Utiwai. Sadly not like the sign suggests on Utiwai, the two sections above are not under construction as of yet despite being walked over by council staff with the ecologist happy with the placement in the scenic reserve.

Access Info
