Fun down hill trial with large bermed corners. A couple of small drops and one larger one near the bottom but all roll-able and there is a easy line around the big drop. Level 3-4 Intermediate when dry, closer to a 4 when wet as the corners are clay and can get greasy (go faster and stay high on the berm!). This can be shuttled by car, or you can ride back up Repeat Offender/Conviction/Bootleg to get back to the start.

Access Info

Start from the car park on the right up by the Watertowers on Main Road, Mapuia, Miramar (on the way up to the old prison). Jail Brake starts about 50 metres past the gate, on the left (next to the pump track).

Track is on Wellington City Council reserve land. Public access. Trails are multi use although this track is primarily used by riders, keep and eye out for others. Track is maintained by Miramar Track Project, part of the Wellington Mountain Bike Club.
