Beginner - Intermediate
This is a working forest with public access allowed. Numerous mountain bike tracks which can be run in addition to what is on this route but do not run on the downhill tracks (these are marked) for safety reasons, as well as 4WD/gravel roads that can be used - also can be used as alternate route to get into the Tararua Ranges. Popular local track for dog walking, mountain biking and running. No vehicular access to the public. Average gradient is around 12% for the climb but the ridge is undulating and the lookout (about 1.5km to the left at the top) is worth a look. Trig station is to the right at the top.
