Kahore Tau Details
A trail hand built by Thomas Lindup during 2014 and 2015. It is a climbing track heading south with a few well graded switchbacks at the start then gradually climbs through trees and old stumps before descending down to a 4WD track, the start of the Pork Pie trail and the Masters Trail.
It was funded by the Lindup/Gainsford Foundation along with some funding from the New Plymouth Mountain Bike Club.
At the northern end of the Mangamahoe MTB Park just off the gravel road; the start is on the track that leads down to the dam.

|One section near top of entry switchbacks has started to be undermined by erosion, take care not to ride on the edge of the trail there.|
