Large stretches of off-camber singletrack through pine forest are the hallmark of this descending trail. There is hardly any pedalling required, and most of the trail can be ridden at slow speed if desired with the difficulty increasing as rider’s speed goes up. With a minimal approach to the build, the trail is currently changing with each race which utilises it and as it weathers naturally. This incremental development keeps it fresh for repeat visits.

Access Info

At the top of Moerangi Road turn onto Bush Road. A mellow descent down the forestry road has a signposted viewpoint which is well worth a quick detour to check out the views from a sheer drop over the Green Lake.

      Amazingly the trail is in really good shape. Never rode it before the 2W but it doesn’t feel fallen apart.
