Trail Description
About this trail
After riding up the forestry roads to the Fringed Hill radio masts you'll start riding hiking trails through native forest. For bikers they are intensely technical with roots, drop-offs, sharp corners, narrow gaps and unrideable sections.

Ride-push along the ridge for two kilometers where you'll see two signs pointing to the left; an old one saying Peaking Ridge and a new one saying Sunshine Ridge. You'll ride down both ridges; Sunshine first, then Peaking.

Eventually, you'll come out on the Dun Mountain Trail which you'll follow back down to Maitai Valley.

Best not to go by yourself or without a topo map, food, water and your cell phone!

Review: This is a very rugged back-country ride along hiking tracks that will maim you if you are not an expert rider. Before you start you will have a warm-up climb on forestry roads, gaining nearly 800 metres. Then comes the long, long ride back down!
