Lazy Fern Details
Fun family friendly downhill trail back to the car park. The trail is 1.2m wide, with wide sweeping switchbacks, smooth surface and of a gentle downward gradient making this suitable for beginners, but can still be fun for those more advanced riders. This is the second half of the 'easy' loop that starts with the Koru uphill track. Lazy Fern starts across the 4WD track at the top of Koru and the track goes through some of the best bush that Makara Peak has to offer.
Built by Makara Peak volunteers, WCC contractors and staff during 2006-2008.
