The track initially ascends about 40m from the Rimutaka Hill Road. Then, apart from a couple of short ascents, the track descends 235m at a near constant 9-11% gradient to meet Back Road less than 0.5km from the Rimutaka Rail Trail.

Along the way there are intermittent patches of tarseal. Given the well formed nature of the otherwise gravel road, it is possible that the road was once sealed throughout its entire length. In any case, the road surface is smooth and firm - making for a fast descent and relatively easy ascent.
