There is not much technical or demanding about this trail, linking Katore Rd with the bottom of Te Wash Road, but it is an essential ride if you are taking out a novice or a youngster on a tag-along. It's only the top section immediately below Katore Road that is moderately steep with a bit of a rut, but that can be avoided.

      Tree down across trail between Piglet and Access Rd. Two trees hanging over trail further up where it loops around the wet bit.

      15 mins reinstalling sign pointing to trail around skid site. Someone had recently taken it on themselves to pull out and install the sign...

      Couple of leaning trees on section around skid site. Can be ridden around but at least the skinny one needs to be dropped and track bed repacked
