Tumeke meaning too much or awesome

It really is awesome but you will never have too much of it.

Upper Tumeke was restricted to a hillside that has a constant steep slope, we called upon the digger to shape it. This section is an Advanced grade.

The bottom half is a hand built sculpture of art using the terrain was a lot easier here as we could run it around a spur and also back and forward across the gullies adding rollers here and corners there

There are two lower options, one that will send you off to do another lap of Spicer Link and the other will get you a lot closer to your vehicle.

Access Info

Raiha street gate if you climb part way up Farm Road. You can also ride Spicer link and then The Doctor to arrive at the top
Alternatively Spicer botanical park climbing up The Doctor
