The first track built at Makara Peak! Technical track that first traverses and climbs a rocky ridgeline, then drops down steeply with tight switchback, rutted and rocky corners. A Makara Peak classic.

Built by Mountain Bike volunteers in 1998. Two long deviations were built in 2001 to lessen the gradient.

Access Info

Starts from Makara Peak summit, heading east. Finishes at the start of Ridgeline Extension and the Three Brothers track.
