Sweet technical forest singletrack along the western side of Lake Kaniere.

At its southern/eastern end the track rises part way up Mt Upright/Te Taumata o Uekanaku, making for a sweet technical descent in each direction. A lookout over the lake is offered part way up the lake side of the climb.

Highlights include the track touching the lake edge, and stunning forest and lake views.

The track is a mixture of intermediate and advanced riding with a short section of expert, grade 5 track near the southern end.
