Starts from Tokorangi Pa Rd close to the intersection of Nursery Rd with a short climb in (gun it as it is pretty much the last one of the day, if you are exiting on Long Mile Rd) then a quick short downhill.
Cross the forest road into a very short cutting with a jump at the end (and a good optional nana berm). Whip back across the road and into the main part of the trail with some great fast downhill sections.
Nice rolling jumps and berms make this an excellent finish for those heading out to Long Mile Rd.
A blast - but, careful but - there are some tricky bits to kill yourself on if you are snoozing, especially if you have been out riding for four hours.
About two-thirds of the way down the trail splits. The original trail - on the right - is still quite technical with some braking ruts, most of the way down it. Still a 3.
The left hand option is for more skilled riders with this big drop off, on the left - hold your speed Grade 4.

Brad Peterson (and Mark Smith) are doing nice work to keep a high-maintenance trail in good shape without dumbing it down and losing the challenging bits.
Normally handles wet weather, well, if not too many riding it on their brakes.
