This trail starts and finishes as Box of Birds, and follows the Box of Birds line most of the way. There are three sections known as the "Fluffy Duck" lines which bypass the most technically difficult sections of Box of Birds, so now the trail is a true grade 3 trail

Access Info

Starts off a link road between Tokorangi Pa Rd and Katore Rd, and is a short distance from the exit of As You Do (turn right and go to the top of the hill)
