Tight twisty trail descending from Horokiwi Road to the Horokiwi Bridleway. There are are a few places where there are alternate routes, such as in the first 3rd where they quickly rejoin the main line, however about half way down where you exit the bush into a grass field there is a major split in the trail. Left is longer and provides some much steeper grade 4 sections, however going straight is more like a grade 3. Due to the tight, rooty, and sometimes off-camber nature of the trail riders should be very careful in wet conditions.

Access Info

Starts at 538 Horokiwi Road, riding up over a grass area with no road front fencing. Continue up over the grassy knoll then stick to the right hand fence to find the entrance to the bush trail.

This trail is unsanctioned.
