Definitely the toughest trail at Makara Peak Mountain Bike Park, it's also one of the hardest legal trails in Wellington.

Designed to test the limits of what's possible on a trail bike, It links a range of challenging features one after the other as it makes it way down the valley opposite Trickle Falls.

It's a good idea to do a track walk beforehand to figure out entry and exit speeds, lines and options. Because it's quite a big step up in difficulty and risk this is a track for expert riders only - if you haven't mastered Trickle Falls, this track probably isn't for you.

Access Info

Head down from the start of Trickle Falls and turn right at the sign.
