A shared, two-way trail for bikes and walkers. Many riders will use it downhill, especially as an exit from the Tokorangi Face section of the forest loop ride.
The top section (above the forest loop) has been fixed up to make it wider, smoother and a bit easier.

Utilising some reinstated old school trails alongside newer sections the profile is punishing. Very steep pinch climbs mean most locals use alternatives (As You Do is a good one to get from Lynmore into the forest). Good for training, not in keeping with the flowing nature of other trails in the forest.
