The track is designed for the eco mountain bike rider and requires a medium fitness and skill level (grade 2 - 3). The track is 16 km and most people complete it in 2 - 4 hours. Shorter sections of the track can also be ridden.

I rode the DOC built, recently opened MTB track in September. First third of the track was a mud hole - impossible to ride & constant water bars make riding unpleasant. Yet I would recommend as a summer (dry) ride.
