Taxman is a track which you need to keep your eyes wide open on, it is harsh-just like ya taxes! While it is a former 4wd drill track, you will need to pick your line carefully due to the drops and rocks all the way down. It has great views of the Tasman sea and Westport. Suitable for all weather conditions. Once you make it down, there is a gentle option of riding the main road all the way back up to the Quarry carpark, or you can cut back up Pig Route, though this can be a steep rocky climb back to the top.

Access Info

Ride Pig Route from the top of the hill by the Quarry car park, Taxman is signposted on the left.
