As one of several trails in the block of harvested forest known as 'The Challenge Block', Boulderdash is suited to experienced riders who like to test their skills on an unusual occurrence in Rotorua - rocks.
The start was redirected in 2020 to avoid the crossing of Challenge Uphill and add a gap jump and step-down. A choice is next: the left-hand line is an easier (but longer) trail to the bottom. The right-hand line features short but sharp rocky sections, including a large roll-over boulder with a couple of lines on it. If you're not feeling super-confident it may be worthwhile stopping to check it out before launching yourself off it.

       Should technically be a double black now because of the compulsory gap a the start. it is an easy jump and by far no the hardest feature on the track but riders should know this before riding.
