The lower half of Missing Link.
Access is by pushing up the walking track. Biking on the walking track should be kept to a minimum to reduce conflict with walkers.
Starts at low saddle, switchbacks in the tussock. A few gnarly bits in the forest.
Finishes at Beeched As. Turn left to return to the bike park, turn right to head to Fernhill.
