Often very rutted, and greasy. This is a great track, with some short, very technical climbs. Be prepared to walk short sections. Descents should be taken with some care, as they can get very badly eroded ruts in places.

Definitely NOT wet-weather friendly

       Absolutely beautiful views over the city, the Taieri Plains and all the way down the coast!!! Incredibly steep in places with some long hard climbs.

       Awesome views but holy shit it’s steep in places. Unless you’re superhuman fit, best be ready to do a fair bit of pushing!! ????

       Wow. What a climb. The views fantastic but holy shit you have to a mountain goat in most places.
      Pushing the bike becomes the norm but a good day out. Well worth the effort.
