A climb out of Dragons Tail clearing to swoop down to the end of Duck Pond Rd via a few high speed berms. A large gap jump at the end can be avoided if air time is not your thing.

Te Ara Puna means The Pond Trail. It runs down to the top of Duck Pond Rd with fast, bermed sections.

From the exit it's a fast forest road run down Duck Pond to the T-intersection on Larch Rd. Stop for a while and admire the Duck Pond - cleared and landscaped.

The entrance to this is at the skid site on Dragon's Tail that has the short berms and jumps section. As you drop out of the pine trees into the clearing Te Ara Puna is immediately on your left.
