GRADE: 4  LENGTH: 1.8 KM


BUILT: in 2004 by Murray Avery and family. 


GETTING THERE: Starts from the bottom of the main climb on Katore Rd.


TRAIL DESCRIPTION: The name changed in June 2013 to Paddy's Run to commemorate Patrick 'Paddy' Avery, a fine young man and a very talented cyclist who passed away late in 2012.

A fast, flowing trail showcasing Murray's obsession with with giving us a life free of ruts (also see Split Enz, Pondy New and Yellow Brick Road). This trail has had a lot of care and remodelling.

There are a couple of trail splits for easy/hard options, they join back up a short distance later.

GETTING OUT:  At a sign saying Wash Rd you can head right and drop out via a couple of switchbacks and head back towards Nursery Rd, the Challenge block and MTB carpark. Or continue on the left hand fork which will see you climb a little then descend a fast section to a skid site. Straight across the skid site delivers you to the entry to The Tickler trail.

RIDERS COMMENTS:
I love this trail. I think it's nearly as good as split enz and it's a million times easier to get to.
