drop down to the beach along what isn't really a track at all. To take this option, as shown on the map, go back almost 0.2km to the saddle point then turn to the east down the valley. The faint track is initially ridable but soon requires walking. Then it gets difficult - the track essentially disappears and you need to scramble down a steep, narrow and scrub-filled gully that resembles a creek more than a track. The last 0.1km is extremely steep, with a slope of around 45%. You'll emerge at the back of a bach just as the track becomes apparent again, so skirt around to the left and on to Pariwhero.

      Hard to see the trail through grass, some of the rocks on the ridable part of the trail can lead to unpleasant surprises. I guess the last part...

       Not a mountain bike track no more. Nice walk if you didn't have a bike.
