Trail Description: This high speed grade 4 descent has plenty of features to keep you entertained on multiple runs. There’s lots of jumps to try for, and plenty of hips to practice your tail whips. If you’re easily clearing all the jumps on Te Ara Kaanihi then graduate to this trail and keep improving. Mostly built by Gab Tebib and finished by Lloyd Jenks for Southstar Trails Jan 2017.

Trail name origin: Te Aranga Hou (Teh – Ah – rah – ngah – Ho)
Words are a powerful expression of the mind, heart and soul. Within both the Maori oral traditions and written literature there are great prophecies which speak of the vast potential that exists within the people of today’s time era. Te Aranga Hou means The New Pathway – Awaken Light Being to seek inner peace, earth healing, unification of the rainbow races and a return to our Creators divine unconditional love.
