this is a great track for biking, but just a few too many tree roots for me at the start to rate it higher, if there are sheep on the lower levels of the track be careful, speed and sheep dont mix
Awesome mountainbike track, great single track with beautiful native forest.
From Takaka hill entrance at Canaan rd its 5 km/ 200 m uphill to the saddle, highest point. (might hitch a lift with mountain bikers cars). Its downhill from there onwards. 65 km roundtrip/ 800 height difference. DOC camp (Canaan camp) at the end of road for 6.-pp. Walk to Howards Hole one of the best forrest walks.
