GRADE: 3 LENGTH: 3.7KM
BUILT: by James Dodds and Rotorua Mountain Bike Club, opened October 2008.
After logging this had a major rebuild in 2017 by Southstar Trails.
GETTING THERE: The easy way is to buy a shuttle pass and be delivered to the shuttle drop off point towards the top of Tawa Rd. Corners trail head is right there. Or you can use any of a variety of the gravel forestry roads, including the lung busting Frontal Lobotomy singletrack trail to get there under your own steam.
TRAIL DESCRIPTION: There are a few trails starting from the same point, so take your time in the first 50m to pay attention to the signs showing the track names. You'll initially ride on the start of Taniwha track alongside the road. Then Taniwha turns to the right, and Huckleberry hound turns to the left you stay between those two and head into Corners. The trail drops to the shuttle pick up via almost 4km of twisting Grade 3 goodness. Many big berms connect a flowing series of traverses that make a big hill last much longer than you would expect. Corners is a trail anybody can ride.
The trail crosses over Little Red Riding Huck trail a few times - keep your eyes peeled for the track name signs to make sure you stay on Corners.
If you're feeling adventurous you can mix in some sections of Little Red Riding Huck with Corners.
GETTING OUT: The trail exits on Pipeline Rd. at the Shuttle pick up point. Either shuttle, or ride up Hill Rd. to get back up to the high points of the forest. Or head right along Pipeline to head towards B Rude Not 2 and the climb up to Hot X Buns trails. Or head down Hill Rd. to the 8 Mile Gate entry point to the forest.
