One of Whakarewarewa forest's originals and if there is an iconic trail this is The One. Highly recommended for families and beginners. Mostly flat flowing trail with good berms, great introduction to riding for first timers or a warm/up down for more experienced riders. Popular for families with wide tracks to overtake slower riders.

Like all the trails rebuilt and revamped after extensive forestry operations, the brief was to retain the shape, style and length of the original. It was also important that the trail remained what it has always been: family-friendly and also a fast, flat workout for the experienced riders.

Easy wide cross-country track On gentle undulating terrain, Some gentle bermed corners with flat inside radius for safety
