Review: The ride up the Murray Creek Track climbs steadily on a wide, well surfaced old historic miners road. At the top - Waitahu Saddle - there is a DOC sign and you turn left and head on down the Ajax Track past two heritage mining sites. You end up back at the village of Blacks Point where you started. All in all it's a good workout through lush rain forest with some historic interest.

Review: Climb is good gradient through widetrack in rainforest, . Turn left at the top and track is undulating for a few km, before a steep and Technical finish for the last 2km (this bit grade 4-5).
