Uptrack is a 3 km long trail offers riders a pedal-able route to the top of the Bluff. The lower section of Uptrack was entirely redesigned in 2023 making Uptrack a smooth ride to the top of the bluffs. Access is from the Bluff Road just above the exit of Penetralia. The trail also intersects the Bluff road at the Q1 junction and the top of Longway.

Access Info

Generally accessed by riding Boardwalk from the Duthie Trailhead parking lot onto Bluff Road. Take a right turn at the kiosk.
