HotBox is a hand made single track, steep, off camber trail through forest. It starts with two decent jumps (which can be avoided) before getting steeper. It has been well made and the catches in the corners make it very rideable. Not recommended in the rain due to the steep, off camber nature. The trail runs from the Codgers area down to the Maitai Valley Road. The start point is also the start of the Top Dog and Lollipop trails

Access Info

You need a Hancock Forest Access permit to ride this trail. They can be purchased from bike shops in Nelson for $10 (for a 2 week permit) or annual permits come as part of Nelson Mountain Bike Club membership (www.nelsonmtb.club)

Running sweet - still a bit of spring moisture so slippery a day after rain, but other than that in super good condition

 I'm not sure but I think the trail has not been uploaded well because i have ridden it with strava and it didn't give me the time... or maybe I mist the end of the trail...
