This track can be ridden both up and down. Please look out for riders approaching from the opposite direction.

The uphill features some steep pinches, and tight switchbacks. The downhill will see you sliding foot-out with a big grin, around those same tight switchbacks.

Recent working bee to clean it up done in September 2014.

Access Info

You'll find it just up from the exit of Charging Pig on the left about 10 metres.  At the top, the entrance is just through the Kauri Grove on the left as you go through the top end gate
