Starting from the end of Turitea Road (before the gravel, where the PNCC Water Treatment plant is), follow the gravel road up the hill for 2km, before hitting the next few km of undulating single track (which is on the edge of the water catchment area), carrying onto Greens Road (Gravel). Continue climbing to the highest point, and then drop down the other side at a very fast pace before turning at Kahutarewa Road to return to the start. Is good for a fast trail/gravel road mix training with some good short hills.
