A formally 'unsanctioned' track that has been adopted by Waiu Park. It is a natural un-groomed bush track that can be very tricky in wet/damp conditions (similar in style to Deliverance). This track is best ridden as a continuation of the 'old' Spoonhill track. It crosses Snail Trail and then joins Snail trail at then end, so watch for riders at intersections.

Access Info

Ride Spoonhill (not 491) and just before you get to the 491/Spoonhill intersection, look for a sharp/steep right hand drop.
