Private forestry road for access to power pylons (i.e. enter at your own risk). The ride through the pine forest is sheltered from the wind and provides an easy alternative connector between Belmont Trig and Horokiwi Road without the need to descent to the Korokoro valley floor. The gate at the Horokiwi Road end is quite high with a tight pedestrian gap at the side which is too small for a bike, therefore it could be quite difficult for people with e-Bikes.

       Beautiful gentle trails in the forest, there are no signs at various forks in the road so follow the road most traveled - we took a couple of wrong turns but it seems like the correct option each time would be the one with the small wooden post mentioning something about underground cables...

      Warning: stinging nettle is about - keep your eyes peeled and your socks up.

       great track in both directions .. easy .. yes watch out for nettles and thistle thorns .. can be a bit slippery and there are a couple of hidden mud holes that can surprise you at speed .
      easy grade 2

       Please note this is private land...
      Major work is being carried out at present - I'm a Horokiwi resident and have seen multiple trips per day of trucks and heavy machinery... think about only riding this on Sundays for a while so we don't get caught and spoil it for everyone...
      Cheers
