Peak Flow is a fairly wide digger-built flow track designed to be the easiest descent from the summit of Makara Peak in the direction of the main car park on South Karori Road.
The first section of the track heads down from the summit over a couple of gentle rollers and berms before a short climb takes you to the high point on the track. From there it drops at a steady rate down the southern side of Makara Peak. The trail features well sculptured berms, rollers and small table tops to provide a fast and enjoyable style of track not found elsewhere on Makara Peak.
While Peak Flow is a grade 3 intermediate track, there's plenty of features to keep more highly skilled riders entertained or help riders continue to develop and progress their skills.
From the bottom of Peak Flow riders can continue on intermediate grade trails including Three Brothers, JFK, Smokin and Lazy Fern to the main car park or head back up to the summit for another run via Sally Alley and Upswing.

|Riding well, however it needs to be looked after in this wet weather. Brake bumps are starting to really develop.|

|Still riding great, there are some brake bumps coming into some of the top corners but I dont feel it detracts from the trail enough to warrant...|
