Notes:

Gunna Gotta runs left from top of Katore Rd opposite where Tokorangi forks off to the right.  Like Tokorangi, the Gunna Gotta trail begins with a climb, but a slightly longer pedal  to a different peak.  The top of Gunna Gotta has great views (like Tokorangi) but a clearer line of sight  to the core trails below.

From the  top, the trail winds its way around the hillside with some narrow, technical rooted  and rutted sections.  While Tokorangi and Corridor's exposed sections are flowy and fast Gunna Gotta's is technical, in fact quite technical, arguably the  most technical section of the trail and somewhat reminiscent of my previous  trips run on Boulderdash.  I found it reasonably intimidating and was  lucky to stay upright.

Once into  the trees Gunna Gotta descends  rapidly while not as tight and rooted as Corridor it is heavily rutted in places and despite the Sun being out the trail was  quite slippery.

There was  some strange trail signage and barricade tape on the lower trail that made  little to no sense to me, itís quite possible that it was left over from an  event, there certainly didnít seem to be any other reason for it, however there  were other trails (including an alternate exit) that may have been closed.

What  appears to be the main exit came out on Katore Rd almost opposite the Lion Trail,  slightly above Corridor's exit.

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.
