This fun track was built by Dan van Asch and is entirely on his property.

Ride the shared use track from the carpark on Cashmere Rd. Crocodile starts at the pine trees and weaves and climbs through the pine forest and then descends into a gully. From the gully it’s a steady and pleasant climb up to the start of Kennedys Bush Track.

Crocodile is a great downhill ride as well, with bermed corners and plenty of grade reversal to pump through and enjoy.

When the weather is wet Crocodile could be closed. However Kennedys Bush track stays open, and can be accessed by riding up Kennedys Bush Rd.

Access Info

From the carpark at Halswell Quarry or from Kennedys Bush Track.
