Between the top of The Wash and Red Tank Rd – Be Rude Not 2 and trails tlikes A Trail , Tickler and Chinese Menu take you to the BRN2 trail head and the exit to Hot X Buns was designed to point you straight at the entrance (at high speed).
In 2010/11 there was a major amount of harvesting in the area and the Rotorua Mountain Bike Club took the opportunity for a full rebuild. Part of the brief was to retain the shape and length of the original and in this the Club along with Mark have created another masterpiece. BRNT defined fast and flowing and, if anything, that is improved in version 2.
Ride the full trail and you will exit at the Red Tank, Nursery Road intersection.
Still rated 5 stars and the punter’s favourite Whaka trail. New trail normally handles wet weather well if there aren't too many riding it on their brakes.
