Kissing Rock

Grade: 5
Length: 900m

Getting There:  Kissing rock starts opposite the lower trail hub right next to the entrance to Checkpoint Charlie.


Trail Description:

A couple of technical log roll overs get you warmed up before you cross ZigZag Rd and head around to the first of the drops. The trail pops up off the road then drops down to the right with quite a steep roll in.

Be aware! This needs to be looked at if its your first time down as it has off-camber roots on it and drops to the side not straight. What follows is a smorgasbord of log drops, steep roll-ins and short technical sections.

After reaching the sideline above the Kahuterawa Valley you get a breather before the final steep section down the hill, roots and off-camber sections will keep you on your toes till a hard right takes you down to ZigZag road.

An extension is being built from this point down to the picnic table by Black bridge, we will keep you informed via the facebook page as to its progress.

Built:  2015-7 by MMBC

Getting Out: 

Kissing rock currently finished on Zig-zag road.

Once the trail drops to the picnic table you will be at the bottom of the hill near the Kahuterawa Rd car park or, head up Back Track for another lap.

Photos and video coming soon
