      Man-made track probably a Grade 4+ if there is such a grading. Steep, rocky, rooty, and many manuka stumps at calf height. Definitely not...

      Track is closed and looks like it's been closed for a while. Apparently some trees are down.

       Great track - technical and steep rocky descents. If you’re after a smooth flowing downhill, choose something else.

       More of a steep walking track you can ride. Not for me. Kind of pointless really.

       Feels like a walking track you can ride. Hard to keep up speed, not worth the ride up in my opinion.

       If you love Unhinged and Maitland Ridge, you will love Duck Down as well. Nice piece of tech!

       Flat start transitions into an awesome techy, rooty, rocky trail that keeps on going! A challenge to keep the flow but when you do it is sweet. Narrow trees add to the fun.
