Gentle switchbacked climb to the top of Montgomery Spur, then flowy hardpacked single track down and around. Good way to break up going up Rapaki Track, or also a good short ride on its own.

Access Info

Around half way up Rapaki Track, where the gradient flattens, look for stock yards on the seaward side of the track. Ride up a 4wd track for 10 metres before the single track starts.

 First time riding track and great find. Couple of rocks combined with wind gusts caught me by surprise but overall really enjoyed it and will do again. Big thanks to landowner/farmer for letting us ride through stock. Much appreciated.
