      Very busy during the Christmas/New Year holidays. Consider using Hikuwai Loop instead.

       The trail is very busy during the Christmas/New Year holidays. Consider using the Hikuwai Loop instead (which is more fun anyway!).
      If you do ride the Outlet track keep your speed well down and be courteous to other users.
