Firebreak along the ridge between Wainuiomata and Moores Valley.

This track is a firebreak along the rolling ridge between Wainuiomata and Moores Valley. Like many firebreaks, it rigorously follows the ridgeline, making no compromises for the sake of comfort or ease. Consequently, there are many short, sharp climbs followed immediately by short, often technically challenging, descents.

Access Info

Branches off ECNZ Pylon Track towards the south, at an intersection that also includes the access road to a prominent communications tower.

The track is a dead-end, so return the same way. The return journey is slightly easier, since it has more down hill than up hill.
