This track is divided into six distinct stages, travelling clockwise from the Boulder Hill (western) end. Gentle single track meanders through bush and open country.
A change in character sees the track get narrower, more technical, and steeper – abruptly dropping almost 100m to a small bridge over Dry Creek. Steep climb to meet a 4x4 farm road, which is about 2.0km from Boulder Hill. Continue heading clockwise – the road in the other direction ends after 0.4km at a locked gate marked with a "Private property - keep out" sign.
The 4x4 road drops a little and then continues climbing up Haywards Hill (though not to the summit) at an intially rather steep average gradient of 18%.
From the highest point, the 4x4 road drops 250m down to the valley floor. Soon after the descent starts you'll pass the western end of Haywards, next to a pylon. Beware that the last 0.5km of the descent is particularly brake-sizzling – watch out for ruts and loose gravel.
Finally, there is a gentle path on which to unwind as you cruise back to the car park.
