This trail is a good honest Grade 3. It is tight and twisty hand cut single track but good riders will maintain great flow all the way down. A trail that rewards good pump and cornering technique.

Riders can ride all the way to the bottom an join into Te Ara Kaikohi, or they can cut out at the half way point onto Check Point Charlie. This is a good option for riders who are looking to lap the top half of the park or connect back over to the Shuttle service.

Trail was built by TrailPro in 2018.
