Uncovered and redeveloped in 2017 this is a continuation of the historic Rameka Track. It has a consistent gradient and several difficult to ride switchbacks that will improve with time and work. Otherwise the trail is easy to ride, though skinny. It gets afternoon sun

Access Info

This trail lies on Project Rameka land. The Rameka Creek (usually dry) needs to be crossed at the bottom. In heavy rain "Great Expectations" would make a more sensible ride, having a bridge over the creek
