An easy route to navigate. When you enter the forest gate on Robinson go straight ahead and then turn right at Whakatahi Rd, a lovely downhill to start with and then continues to a lovely little climb. At the top of Whakatahi turn left and keep going until you see the yellow sign post for Anzac Rd, then head down Anzac Rd which goes on for about 3 km.
Stick to the main wide track as there are a lot of smaller trails off the main track, at the very bottom turn right you will see that you are now on Campbell Rd, Keep going along Campbell Rd for about a km, until you see Long Bush Rd on your right. You now have a nice 3km climb coming up as you head up Long Bush Rd. Keep going all the way up again, staying on the main track, going straight past Spindlay which will be on your left. Keep on the track all the way up until you reach Whakatahi Rd on your left, then head back down Whakatahi and back to the car park! And you're done!

Make Up of Run
Easy Single Track: 10%
Gravel Road: 90%
The start point is from Robinson Rd, If you venture down Sunnyside Rd from Coatesville, Robinson Rd is on the left after the first bridge. Travel all the way up Robinson Rd to the top, and park outside the forest gates.
Never had a problem parking my car outside the gates, the car park is fairly small, but I always seem to find a park without any issues
On Anzac just stay on the main track. Do the same on the way back up Long Bush - stay on the main gravel road
Windproof jacket, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.
Nowhere to fill up the water bottles
Down the bottom of Anzac Rd can get a little muddy but nothing that would be to difficult to run in even in winter
The bottom of Anzac has a few stony bits, but nothing that should be an issue.
