While not long, 255 vertical in 3km is a pretty fair climb and gets the hearty rate going nicely. There is no real navigation required... just follow the well marked track. There is one place where you climb the stile, go across a farm track to the very obvious stile on the other side. Further up you come to the intersection at the start of the loop.... I went left as the arrow points, but it makes no real difference as you finish up back at the same place.

    You come to the stream twice, on the day I ran there was plenty of water... not sure what it would be like in summer.

    There had been a bit of rain recently and the track was still fine.
