Description

This track was built as a gentle connection between Allington Road and St. Albans Avenue. The track is generally smooth and firm, though some of the corners are fairly tight.

Just 60m from the Allington Road end is the AMP Connector, which goes up to the picnic tables on Ridgeline Extension. Otherwise, the track cruises along mostly under a pleasant bush canopy. Towards the St. Albans Avenue end there is a series of zigzags as the track winds down a hill, though the gradient is gentle so the track works well in either direction.

From the St. Albans Avenue end it is a bit of a grind up Snake Charmer, but only for 0.3km to where you'll find the end of Big Tom's Wheelie.
