For a start the forest is really spectacular but the trail is far more rewarding for the effort. It is a reasonable climb from Pohaturoa Rd to the top of the first hill and that is backed up by a second climb not long after, however both climbs zigzag their way up at a reasonable gradient, a few roots being the biggest challenge.
From the top the trail undulates around the hill before dipping steeply at times, with some sections containing multiple rutted and rooty lines.
My biggest complaint about Rosebank is the water crossing at the bottom. I am the mountain bike equivalent of a cat, I hate riding in mud or water and this water crossing is deep, almost to the axel and that’s not accounting for how much I would have sunk in the soft mud. It had “Nasty OTB event” written all over it.
From the other side of the creek it’s a short climb and descent back to Pohaturoa Rd.
Certainly not a favourite trail, but very picturesque and a way of adding an extra 1km of burn to the end of your ride.
