This loop starts on the Medium Gorge Route and turns into the Deversons Track once you cross the stream.
Find the start of the track behind the Lodge. It begins by descending swiftly and crosses through some muddy technical sections for 800m before popping out onto the ridge. Once on the ridge there is a couple of kms of excellent trail running track. It's a little overgrown but underfoot it's clear.
Once you start to steeply descend again you will reach the halfway point and cross over a small stream. The climb back to the top is a bit of a lung buster and steep, and the second half is a little more technical with some rock scrambling but once you see the farm on your left it gets a little easier.
You will finish behind the lodge again. Walk past the toilets and back down the steps.

The start to the track is behind the Te Kauri Lodge (3679 State Highway 31), and is accessible to the public. Walk up the steps on the left side of the lodge and then go left again at the top and you'll see the start of the track on your right.
Park on the grass verge in front of the Lodge on the side of the road. Don't park in the driveway.
While the track is well marked, it's not used as much as other tracks, so there is more debris than a well worn track. Keep your eye on the orange markers.
