One of the premium trails on offer at Plenty Gorge. It can be ridden both ways & overall is technically not difficult to ride with only a few pinch climbs & loose rock to contend with. The difficulty comes into play when you realise that you are riding along a narrow trail which a steep drop towards the river in some section. Ride the trail with care & respect. If you are not confident it is an easy trail to walk & enjoy the view.

This trail is unsanctioned.

      It’s now been labeled as a track with signs and made safer - ie taken out some of the techy bits. This is an unwelcome development.

       Cool track, this track is not for a rider afraid of heights, because this track basically runs perpendicular to a cliff face. minor erosion and some low hanging trees, but nothing that needs desperate work besides, it makes the trail more interesting.
