Trail Reviews

5 stars for the waterfall and 1 star for the run where you're likely to spend more time sidestepping tourists than actually running. Very happy it's part of the directory though as would've hated missing it. If you add to Mt Karioi and/or Pipiwharauroa makes for a good day. Probably easiest 54 points on offer.
