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.
