This is track opened to mountain bikes in September 2009.
Bike and Foot
It may be best to leave from Okahu road end, as this gets you 6km downhill at the end. The track was well maintained but with occasional slips that would have been easily ridden past if there wasn't such a large drop off the edge.

Approximate ride time is 5 to 7 hours for intermediate riders. This track is in a pretty remote area and though not technically difficult you should go well prepared. It would be wise to take a 1st aid kit, as location is very remote from medical services.
