    Mangatarere Valley in Masterton. 400mm deep pine needles full of rocks and 75 degrees. (out of my depth). I went up here years ago with my dr200 and difficult but you could see the terrain.

    This time the pine needles had covered the rocks and there were more rocks.
    I found that once you face that incline – there’s no going back – so I found
    myself just going up and up. I came off at least six times. This was not the trail
    for someone on their own or someone of my 51yrs age and inexperience – but that’s why it was an adventure I guess.
    The view at the top was quite nice.

    here are some more pictures – Sorry mucked up the first lot – .

    This trip was on my drz400 and was foolhardy and memorable.

    I went through gorse that scratched the plastics on my new
    bike. I knew what was on the other side as I’d been there
    before.

    I won’t be doing this trip ever again so it’s nice to be able to record it
    here.

    I think you should round up a couple of other local riders and give it another crack, and take a gps to track it 😉

    Man have times changed.We used to take my old Cortina up to the road end and then tramp in to Sayers hut and do a bit of hunting around Totara flats.From memory there used to be a fairly flash private lodge up there
