Grade 2-3 section of the Sharland Valley Trail. Starting at the junction of Sharland Road and Bobs Fern Road Lower entrance, this track follows the road down for about 300m before a tight right hand switchback down over a bridge brings you into some pristine native bush. A fast flowy section into some switchbacks brings you to the second bridge over the river with a deceptive exit. A short section of climbing then brings you to a roller coaster run of big dips, one of which is quite steep at the start. the track finally flows around the corner and joins up with the Sharland Valley Trail just below the 3km gate on Sharland Road.
You need a Hancock Forest Access permit to ride this trail. They can be purchased from bike shops in Nelson for $10 (for a 2 week permit) or annual permits come as part of Nelson Mountain Bike Club membership (www.nelsonmtb.club)
