Linger and die is a very good three kilometre grade 5 downhill trail. It is feature packed all the way with lots of drop jumps, gap jumps, rock drops, rock gardens, some sweeping berms, lots of fast rolling sections, a few intensely technical sections and the odd steep rutted shoot. It was cleverly designed to take advantage of the terrain which is littered with large schist rock outcrops. Total descent is almost 400 metres.
Organise a shuttle drive to enjoy this track - the road to the top is steep and unfriendly.

Take Matau Street out of Clyde - it leads you down to the bridge over the Clutha River - and then becomes Earnscleugh Road. About two kilometres further on turn right into Hawksburn Road - the sign says "Lookout". There is a car park a couple of hundred metres up Hawksburn Road. It's at the bottom of the track. Hawksburn then becomes a rough four wheel drive road that climbs steeply for about three kilometres to the top of the hill where the track starts.
