Narrow single track that takes riders out to the south west corner of Makara Peak Mountain Bike Park. Starting from Aratihi there's a short climb before the track drops down to meet the main Leaping Lizard track after crossing a 4WD track. The track surface is mainly rocky so it holds up well in the wet.

Upper Leaping Lizard extension built in 2003 by Makara Peak Supporters.
