Mountain Biking Rude Rock

*****   Add a review
#15 of 387 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#2,653 in the world

Rude Rock is an exquisitely crafted, 3km advanced downhill rad roller coaster that's fast with opportunities for nice air. It will have you hyper most of the way and if it throws you it probably won't hurt you - there's tussock either side rather than rock! It's superb.

It is one of the best of the awesome Coronet Peak trails.

Zoot starts just below and makes a nice follow-on. Or you can turn off down Pack Track Sack to Skippers Pack Track.
