Reclaimed historic water race across Coronet face. The trail is 2-way and multi-use. Generally uphill towards Bush Creek/Arrowtown.

Significant exposure to the tracks edge near Bush creek end

Will eventually be part of an approx. 50km xc loop from Arrowtown linking Skippers and Macetown, hopefully completed by 2020.

Access Info

Access from Arrowtown by pedalling up Bush Creek which is a grunt.

Access from coronet via Upper Hot Rod from bottom of Rude Rock.

Access from Malaghans Road on valley floor via Coronet Peak Station Road and Dan O Connell Climb (uphill only)
