Fire road that takes you down the the Plenty River where you can cross to the North side if shallow enough. The fire road is poorly maintained & is rocky due to many rears of erosion. It is fun to ride down & lifts the heart rate on the way up. It is not a technically challenging climb but is does provide a consistent gradient out of the valley.
