This trail crosses a working farm so please stick to the we'll marked trail and be considerate of stock.
An excellent way to access Missing Link.
There is a fair bit of hike a bike, but it's a cool place to be so chill out, switch off Strava and enjoy the epic back country.
The trail is a bit overgrown and requires some walking. Some wet spots and a few fences to hop. Much better to go up then down.
