Ikigai is the trail formerly known as Spuds. It encompasses the various sections of the new descending trail that have been built in stages. The entrance to Ikigai is on the Fenceline trail, north of the Sawmill/Fenceline junction but before the Roller Coaster. It is clearly sign posted. The trail descends parallel to Sawmill before turning and crossing Highbury Fling. At the Highbury Fling junction, head right (downhill) then the first sharp left to continue riding Ikigai. This junction will be altered to be more obvious, at a later date. The trail then crosses Pink Tohunga, which is a walking only trail. Please respect this and do not ride your bike down it. The next section of Ikigai features a step down and a few small table tops and is faster than the previous section. The trail then crosses Planet Ride which is another 'walking only' trail, so please respect this and do not ride your bike on it. Ikigai crosses Planet Ride and traverses an east facing slope, ending at a gorge/stream crossing. Currently the trail ends here. To exit, you need to push your bike up the slope near the 'Enduro' sign, onto Transient. A bridge will be constructed at some point, after which the construction of Ikigai will continue, ending on the 4wd trail just south of the entrance to Serendipity.

PLEASE NOTE! The trail is actively being worked on. Features may change and people may be working on the trail at any time of the day. We do try and take precautions, so if you see a sign or see a fluro jacket hanging in the middle of the trail, please slow down.

Access Info

The entrance to Spuds is on the fenceline, between Sawmill to the south and the beginning of the Rollercoaster to the north.

Please take care as some trail features are still being finalised.
