This ride will take you through bush lined corridors, past rapids foaming with water in the Ngakawau Gorge, and over historic railway formations. There may be sharp or rusty metal remnants along the track.

Expect to dismount from time to time as you navigate the swing bridge at Mangatini Falls or when clambering up the rock steps by Irishman's tunnel.

For mountain biking enthusiasts Charming Creek was rated by the Kennett Brothers as a 3 star ride - highly recommended ride which they enjoyed.

This is a shared-use track.
