Mainly downhill singletrack - a beauty and very entertaining as it initially snakes its way across the face of the hill you just climbed.

While the new top section in the young pine trees is well-groomed, do not be deceived - the riding line is narrow and there is little room for error before you'll be off the track. Lower down the hill the original trail has some real technical challenges through native bush. You need to be on your game through the drops, tight switchbacks and chutes – it is an honest grade 4.

Part way through the native bush section there is a marked exit to your left to access Katore Jumps.
Dave taught himself trail building on this and has refined and refined it. Nice work. The open top section normally handles wet weather well, the lower native bush section gets slippery, especially over the numerous rooty sections.
