Description

The top 0.1km of this track is across an open area on a hairpin corner of Mount Albert Road, about 0.3km downhill from the Mt Albert 4x track. Cruise down the grassy hill past the end of Volga to a clearing, then turn sharply left down the sign-posted track.

From the grassy clearing at the top, this track descends rather steeply for 0.15km through a gap carved in the scrub. At that point there is a sharp dip in the track, with an off-camber dirt surface that is quite slippery when wet. After climbing out of the dip, the track continues down to exit onto a quiet section of Melbourne Road.
