Short downhill-only section of trail that bypasses the 4WD track on Zac's Track. It's quite fast and loose in places, with a few rollers that can be jumped.

Built by the Kennett Brothers and volunteers from Whitireia Outdoor Adventure certificate course in mid-late 2018 with a grant from the Ian 'Zac' Pearson Memorial Fund.

Access Info

Head down Zac's track and when you reach the wide 4WD double track turn hard right.
