A DH track starting through the tussock then into the native bush where it gets very steep (you'll want to be on the brakes as soon as you enter the forest) going down all the way down back to the Mt Cheeseman ski field access road.

Please note: DOC have stated no more tracks are to be developed below the Cheeseman Skifield Road.

Access Info

Park by the Cheeseman Ski field gate and ride up.
