GRADE: 3.  LENGTH: 3km.


GETTING THERE: Most often accessed from Hill Road, take the Chestnut Road turn off which quickly turns from open forestry gravel road, to forested doubletrack.


TRAIL DESCRIPTION: Uphill link track from Chestnut Road to Moerangi Road. Used as an alternative to climbing Hill Road and either Frontal Lobotomy trail or Moerangi/Tawa Roads to gain elevation. The long flat section is double track, which narrows to singletrack as it starts to climb. The main climb is slippery hard-pack clay, which can be mossy. When it's dry - no worries. When it's wet, you'll need to pick a few good lines to maintain traction. 


GETTING OUT: Exits close to the intersection of Moerangi and Tawa roads. From there you can either head up Moerangi to access Split Enz, Kung Fu Walrus or Rocky Horror.

Or you can ride up Tawa road to access the multitude of trails available from the Southstar Shuttle drop off point.
