Labyrinth is a good step up for those who have mastered Snail Trail and are looking for an intermediate level challenge.

The climb is generally intermediate with a few pinch climbs, and the downhill is a fast, flowing fun ride. It makes a good loop from the Waiu Street carpark, climbing Jungle Gym to the Pukeatapu Hub, riding Labyrinth, then returning via Snail Trail and the Wetland Loop.

Labyrinth is now one-way only.

Access Info

Labyrinth starts at the end of Jungle Gym (at the ECNZ road/Pukeatapu Hub). The crest of the track is at the Labyrinth Hub (where you can choose other tracks if you wish) , with the end of the track joining Snail Trail.

You can also start at the crest, by going to the Labyrinth Hub from the ECNZ road.

At Snail trail, turn left and carry on descending until you get to the Wetland loop.
