The Anaconda is a marvel of down-slope singletrack that winds its way over open country to the beach at Taylors Mistake. The smooth high speed berms are amazing, and there are twists, bends, straights, jumps, drops, rocks - a whole covey of fun - all the while with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean laid out below you. It's only a couple of kilometres long but it's an outstanding down hill ride - the best on the Port Hills - even better than the Bowenvale Downhill.

The final section is explosed as it snakes around the side of the hill before descending to the car park at Taylors Mistake.

    Short and sweet - very sweet singletrack - a feast of fast flowing bends and other tasty stuff.
    Incidentally, I was too lost in the moment to stop and take photos of the best bits. Think about taking your camera to fill in the gaps!!!
