As a tribute to a NZ Rock band, this trail was first started in 2013. The first half of trail is pretty flat and runs along an old bulldozer track, then the fun begins.
There are additional plans for this track which will increase the length of the downhill section, and continue it down beside the Waiwhakaiho River.
If you want to help out in making these plans become reality, contact the New Plymouth Mountain Bikers Club.

[EDIT] Extension has been completed The original exit is now closed off for the time being.
