Towai is a flattish trail traversing the eastern side of the hill in the park. It is a real mix of tight turns, rooty climbs, roller coaster type sections and gentle riding through native bush. Early morning riders clear the many spider webs that form over night. During winter and very wet periods it does become boggy due to it's shelter from both the sun and wind.

Access Info

Towai is a 2 way track. The upward entry is at the end of Labyrinth (which can be access from the 3rd pylon off ECNZ 4x4 access road). The downward entry is accessed from the ECNZ 4x4 access road - keep riding past the entry to Freewheel.

Towai can be a nice trail to get up to Freewheel. The end of Freewheel has the option of connecting back to Labyrinth, Beeline or exit on to the summit of Wainuiomata Hill Road.

Dry and firm, rising very nicely considering how wet the winter has been.

Track is strangely but awesomely dryish. Roots are a bit slippery as expected
