Description

This is a 4wd access road for pylon 19, though more importantly (from the perspective of the Makara Peak mountain bike park) it provides access to the Skills Area.

Much of this road runs parallel to Koru and Magic Carpet. Towards the northern end, about 0.12km from Snake Charmer, is a major intersection of the park's lower tracks. That is: on the western side you'll find the top of Koru and the start of Sally Alley, while on the eastern side is the nexus of Big Tom's Wheelie, Swigg, and Lazy Fern.

Getting there

Northern end meets Snake Charmer just above the intersection with Ridgeline Extension and Big Tom's Wheelie.

Southern end is in the Skills Area.

Length
