GETTING THERE: Starts at the top of the climbing trail Apumoana. It's almost the top of Direct Road, if you are coming from the Waipa side.
TRAIL DESCRIPTION: Designed as a "anybody can ride it" alternative to the much trickier Hot X Buns, Te Poaka redefines the "flow" trail. It is very fast, smooth and wide. There are numerous features but all are safe if speed is under control. If you are not a confident rider, just take it easy! Keep your speed down and enjoy a leisurely cruise through big widely spaced pine trees.
GETTING OUT: The trail exits at the big clearing at the junction of Pipeline and Red Tank Roads, with Be Rude Not To and other trails accessible from there.
