I rode it from south to north - from the Waipapa Dam to Arapuni.
The southern section from Waipapa dam is fantastic - beautiful trail through native forest and it's real close to the lake in places. You have to walk up the steps to the top of a cliff. After some more native bush you go through lots of pine forest then after the swing bridge it's a 200m climb to Waotu Road. It's mainly down hill to Jones Landing and then there is some quite nice single track to Arapuni village and a coffee.
