Leaping Lizard Details
Track starts off with a fast roller coaster style downhill along an old farm 4WD track. Either continue along down Leaping Lizard or branch off and head down Nikau.
Track switches back into single track after the more open double track in the middle portion of Leaping Lizard and is tight in places as it heads downhill in an 'old school' style mountain bike track. Track is steep and loose in places, tight and fast in others.
From the end of Missing Link, head straight up the 4WD track rather than turning right into Aratihi and grind your way up for around 10 minutes. Alternatively, from the end of Sally Alley head up Upswing and turn left onto Upper Leaping Lizard shortly after reaching Aratihi.

|A good option in this wet weather. Seems to have had some work done? Definitely felt a grade higher. Still a fucker to climb out of.|

|Dry but still a little surface moisture for the tread. The whole track has been line trimmed so in perfect condition right now!|
