Fluffy Ducks easier lines by DC with help from Mark West and a big team of pixies (photo by Mark, too).
TRAIL MAP 


GETTING THERE:

The perfect complement to the climb of As You Do, which ends about 50 metres east of the start of Box of Birds on a side branch of Tokorangi Pa Rd.

The entry point is the former entry/exit of As You Do


TRAIL DESCRIPTION: The first section is easy cross-country, with an avoidable dropoff (go right) at the point where it crosses Tokorangi Pa Rd. The trail continues on the other side of the road – a mixture of steep turns and drops and flatter sections, often slippery after rain, more like a grade 4 level of riding. Three easier lines are being put in during 2018 to bypass the most difficult sections – watch this space. The last section of the trail, after a log feature with several options to cross it, is an easy coast through to the junction of the trail with the lower section of As You Do. 


GETTING OUT: Finishes at a junction point with As You Do. If you continue straight ahead on As You Do you’ll get to Tarawera Rd. If you turn right at As You Do this trail will take you on a steady climb back up to Tokorangi Rd and then K2, or beyond that, access to Tokorangi, Corridor and Gunna Gotta trails.
