Fun technical track, starts with open ridgeline, with clay ruts, then drops into a valley in trees. Sharp switchbacks and a few steeper drops. Tree roots and clay are slippery when wet.

Built by J'Ville Cycles, YMCA Conservation Corps and Wellington mountain bikers in 1999/2000.

Access Info

From Makara Peak Summit ride down Zac's (on west side of hill) to join this track, or ride T3 to the start of the track.

Amazingly awesome given how slippery the other tracks are with all the rain.
