A 10km intermediate grade loop in Plantation forest that features a mix of gravel forest roads and hand built single-track. An honest climb to the top on forest roads, but worth it for the 5km single-track descent with 360 vertical metres of gravity on the way back down. Yes, a 5km single- track descent! Access by kind permission of forest owners Port Blakely. Please respect any closures and do not ride in other areas of the forest.
Ride up South Ridge Rd, Cross Rd, Middle Ridge Rd to the top gate. Turn around and head down the Middle Ridge, Cross and South Ridge Rds’ single- track.
Alternatively head out to SH1, turn right, right again after the bridge at the Mill House onto Mt Misery Rd. Climb Mt Misery Rd to Middle Ridge Rd then down Middle Ridge single-track, Cross Rd single-track, South Ridge Rd / single-track.
All tracks are built and maintained by Mountain Biking North Otago Incorporated.
