This is one of the best maintained 'single track' trails in the Kaimais (still "Kaimai" enough and a few messy spots in places though). With just two sign posted junctions to worry about, it's a fairly accessible loop.

Can be done in either direction, although anticlockwise is probably more fun, as it climbs steadily over 8km and then a huge descent over the last 2km. Doing it the other way will involve climbing 400m in 2k.

    Will be quite muddy on top after heavy rain. There's a few steam crossings, none of which should be too bad after rain.
