 On some  maps Underbilly is listed as an up  trail, but the trail signage and the flow of traffic clearly defines Underbilly as a descending and  alternate start to Billy T.

Underbilly is significantly easier ride than the top  section of Billy T but it is not  without its challenges.  Lots of roots, a  few muddy sections and some slightly technical twisty flow over a generous  layer of pine needles makes Billy T a great ride and a trail that I rode many times.

Underbilly runs from the shuttle drop off in contrast to Billy T which is a reasonable climb up Tawa Road through the gate.  This makes Underbilly a favourite of many shuttlers.

Underbilly merges with Billy T after only a couple of minutes.

This video  includes the remainder of Billy T down to the intersection of Moerangi Rd, Hill Rd and the start of G Rock.   For more information on the lower section of Billy T please visit the Billy T trail page.

Blog articles that mention this trail


This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
