There are a few trails starting from the same point, so take your time in the first 50m to pay attention to the signs showing the track names. You'll initially ride on the start of Taniwha track alongside the road. Then Taniwha turns to the right, and Huckleberry hound turns to the left you stay between those two and head into Corners. The trail drops to the shuttle pick up via almost 4km of twisting Grade 3 goodness. Many big berms connect a flowing series of traverses that make a big hill last much longer than you would expect. Corners is a trail anybody can ride.
The trail crosses over Little Red Riding Huck trail a few times - keep your eyes peeled for the track name signs to make sure you stay on Corners.
If you're feeling adventurous you can mix in some sections of Little Red Riding Huck with Corners.

Some sections really bedding in well. Others are getting a bit cut up already, with some braking bumps forming on some of the steeps.
