A serious route that can have consequences, but then that's what gives Mutleys its Nelson grade 6 status. Hand-built single track through some amazing native forest as the route winds its way through rock-chutes, drops, off camber roots with stunning views over the Richmond Ranges.

      Tree still down- easy to get around- silky saw and a bit of grunt could sort it. Engaging track otherwise.

      Medium tree fallen over track about halfway down but easy enough to get around it. Probably need a chainsaw for that one. Smaller manuka down in...

       629 Gully would come close. It starts in the bush near the top of the open/zig zag section on lower 629.

       Also Dew lakes. Probably just about as hard but with less exposure.
