A good short run, a lunchtime favorite - short sharp ups and downs, stairs, some tricky downhills and great views of Oamaru from the tops. After rain it can get very slippery with a clay base to it. Also a few mountain bike trails that you could add in to make it a bit longer.

At the start you go up a hill - go straight at the top, through the gate to the end of the road, where you need to open another gate to continue the loop (or head left here and down the mountain bike trails)
