 This is a nice gentle access track to ECNZ Pylon Track, Average Gradient of 6%. Alot of Walkers/Runners use this track, so care has to be taken on blind corners. The clay under gravel surface does hold water, and can stay muddy/sticky in the shaded/bush areas. thankfully due to the west facing hillside it dries out as quick as is possible,when there is fine weather.
