This is a nice joiner track to take you from the Colonial Knob, downhill to a point to either head south towards the Spicer Forest Track or the civilised Te Araroa Road, to Ohariu Valley road. Or head north towards the Landfill. The start of the track is a narrow single gravel/grass and then widens out onto paddock and a step downhill (with some grass cover farm track) to the end, and the decision to head north or south. " Head south to the Spicer Forest track, it's amazing."
