GRADE:4   LENGTH: 2KM


BUILT: Original built in 2005 by Dave Hamilton.
Major rebuild in 2011/12 by the Rotorua MTB Club after the Tokorangi Pa ridgeline area was logged. Mike Metz and the Club's trail coordinator, Rob Smail from Bike Culture marked the top section and Richard Caudwell, Damon Thompson and Ash Edwards did the rebuild.
Ash, Mark Upshall and Casey King built the lower section.


GETTING THERE: Starts from the top of Katore Rd.


TRAIL DESCRIPTION: Arguably the most photographed location in the Rotorua trail network. Rick Twimane's seat at the trail head provides the ideal spot to regroup, catch your breath, and take in the panoramic 360 degree views over Lake Rotorua and the city to the north, and as far as the mountains of the Central Plateau to the south.

The open section from the start is fast and flowing with berms and jumps, (all safely table-topped and rollable), but able to be jumped for those who want to. Dusty in summer, it's at it's best when the dirt is holding a little moisture.
A brief climb leads to a fork with Tokorangi trail to the right and Corridor continuing to the left through the open area for a short distance before descending into the mature pine trees.

After a few rooty corners in the pines you come to the next trailhead - North Face and Eastern Spice to the right, Corridor continuing on to the left. 

Into a stretch of native bush now which is from the original 2005 trail build, with slippery roots and some tricky corners before rolling into the final section through pine trees again.

The last section features a couple of traverses across the face of the hill with smooth, machine-built jumps and rollers. Again, all safely able to be rolled at slow speed, but definitely made to catch some big air as rider's speed increases.

GETTING OUT: Ends at the bottom of Katore Road. Head up Katore Road a short distance to access Paddy's Run (formerley named 'A Trail') on your right. Or keep going up Katore road to access Katore Jumps, or to the top for K2, Gunna Gotta and the variations of Corridor like Eastern Spice, North Face and Tokorangi Pa trail.

The top and bottom sections handle wet weather well, the middle section through the native bush gets very slippery.

RIDERS COMMENTS:
This is one of the must rides in the forest. Great set of jumps in the middle and the end.
