A very gentle climb will deliver you to a stunning lookout spot with views over Lake Rotorua and the city. Easily accessed, it's going to be a favourite for beginner and younger riders with views like this - similar to the views from the higher point of Corridor trail, but without the effort of having to climb Katore Road. to get there.

The trail is smooth with flowing berms and mellow rollers. A flat section crosses over the Old Exit trail, keep going straight ahead here and you'll soon be into the treeline. The trail from here is mostly the original Exit trail which was not affected by the forestry operations. Some corners have been realigned and improved to ensure a smooth flow all the way to the exit.

       The trails has really good flow, especially the smooth berms in the top section. Some of the corners in the lower section are pretty tight, but also large and well bermed. I just wish this trail was longer, it's over too quickly.
