This is a fairly typical winding forestry road that climbs part way up Goat Rock. Its most redeeming feature is that it provides a connection between either the Tunnel Gully Recreation Area or the Kaitoke Regional Park through to the Rimutaka Inclinel and subsequent tracks.

The final drop down to meet the Rimutaka Incline is steep and twisty, making for a fun descent (or a difficult climb).
