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).

 Did the West to east direction of this Trail in May and It's a nice steady climbing track. Nice workout with good all weather surface. Certainly a lot more interesting way to get to the top of the incline than going the Tourist route. Considering the steepness of the decent to tie into the Tourist Incline route. it would be a hard climb going East to west. Still considering the all weather nature of the track it's must ride track if you are ion the area.
