Description

This is one of the main exits from Makara Peak. It follows on from Swigg, ending at the main car park.

There are several large berms, making for great corners that can be taken at almost any speed, though other corners are rocky and require the application of more skill. Other interesting features include a sharp step down in a section that is already sloping downwards, and a very steep concrete ramp immediately after a tight squeeze between two massive tree stumps.

Take care on the final run towards the car park, as this track merges with the end of Lazy Fern immediately before the car park's north bridge.
