An old fire break. Usually ridden by those who have come in from the Marahau Hill saddle.

The last part down to the Corkscrew lookout offers pro riders some Rampage style drops. The rest of us keep left for a much easier exit.

Access Info

Signposted at the pond on Main Road Kaiteriteri Forest. Head straight up the hill there, or left to go down to the lookout via Corkscrew Road Kaiteriteri Forest
