A technical downhill through native bush. Upper section rooty. Fast single track traverses and wider sections of steep dropping rock faces. A couple of short pushes in the middle and a fast rocky finish. Well worth the effort to get there!

Access Info

Easiest access is via Whareroa Farm or Perhams Rd in Maungakotukutku Valley
