GRADE: 3. LENGTH: 1km.


BUILT: in 2000 by Leone Sinclair and Jeanne Bright.


GETTING THERE: To see the satellite view of this trail tracks.org.nz


TRAIL DESCRIPTION: In 2014 Sidewinder was re-designated as an uphill only track. It has recently been tidied up to make climbing it slightly easier. This allows riders who have descended on Whaki or Tukonohi, or returning from Eagle vs. Shark or Kataore trails to avoid the forestry road climb of Hill Road to get back to the bulk of trails (and closer to shuttle uplifts) on the singletrack climb of Sidewinder. 

Steep pinches have been mellowed but will keep fit riders challenged. Moderate fitness will see some people walk sections.


GETTING OUT: At the exit on the saddle of Direct Road riders can turn left to get to the Direct/Hill road intersection, or turn right to climb a little more and access Hot X Bun trail.

 


Please ride within your limits, and be aware that trails can change with weather and heavy use from race events effecting their difficulty. Ride Rotorua will in no way be liable for any injury or damages arising from riding any of the trails listed on the Ride Rotorua website.
