Continuation of Ridgeline, although an easier section of track, winding down to Big Tom's Wheelie and Swigg as part of a grand loop. The third part of the new Three Brothers track (built 2014) also starts in the same place.

Ridgeline Extension was built in 2005 by NEC Global Volunteers and Makara Peak Supporters.

Access Info

Starts where Ridgeline exits onto 4wd track. The last section of the new Three Brothers track forks off to the left a few meters in. Ridgeline Extension drops down to the right. Alternatively to get to it: turn right from top of Sally Alley to Snake Charmer (main 4WD), follow road down then climb up the steeper 4WD on the left to join into it.
