This trail takes you through the valley behind the MTB park and follows the track used by miners to link Whangamata and the 3000-strong mining settlement at Luck-At-Last mine. It has two solid uphills and is fairly technical in places, but is an exhilarating ride that incorporates a fascinating slice of local history. If you’re up for a challenging ride, this is not to be missed.

 Ridden on Sunday 02/09/2018.

Nice 30km loop from Whangamata. Long forestry climb but not terribly difficult apart from loose rock on some of the forestry road.

After rain during the week, track was great fun. Slightly sticky and clear right through. Challenging descent in one or two sections - rocky and rooty. One or two drops.

If you are in the area and like a big loop with a challenging and rewarding track, this is the one. Not really worth the long trip just for this track, but other tracks in the area I didn't ride and a beautiful setting.
