Trail Description: As the trail construction moves into zone 5, the trailcrews are looking for new and innovative features for these trails. Zone 5 is unique in the Waitangi MTB Park as it has relatively gentle slopes, this means the trail builders have the opportunity to leave some sections of ground au-natural, and bench in where there is steeper side slopes. This grade 4 trail is a really interesting mix of off-camber natural trail sections with roots (shock roots), interspersed with digger cut clay benches that act like catchers, allowing riders to apply pressure through their tyres, rebounding up onto the next section of natural ground. This dance of weighting and unweighting the bike is a fun skill to develop, and critical for riders wanting to progress to more difficult trails. Built by Lloyd Jenks and Charlie Makea of Southstar Trails, April 2017.
