This is one  of the preferable ways back from Eagle vs Shark.  Hill Rd is one of the longer roads in the Rotorua Redwoods, running from the end of Eagle vs Shark up to the shuttle  zone and back down to the 8 Mile  Gate carpark.  On this video Iíve ridden  or more accurately walked from the end of Eagle vs Shark up to midpoint of Corners.

The ride  from the end of Eagle vs Shark and  the intersection of Redtank Rd / Pipeline Rd up to Lentil Link was as far as I could pedal and even then I found myself zigzagging up the  hill, however itís a long hike from there up to the intersection of Frontal Lobotomy and Direct Rd.

Frontal Lobotomy is a reasonable climb (Iím told) up to  the shuttle drop off.  Direct  Rd is a short dip before climbing up past the end of Sidewinder and up to the top of Hot X Buns.

Crossing Hill Rd a little further up are the Downhill Trails and a short ride beyond  is where Corners crosses Hill Rd (continue on another 20m for  the start of Little Red Riding Huck).

This  section of Hill Rd is very  picturesque and in that regard itís a nice way to come back from a ride on Eagle vs Shark, however it is a fair  climb.


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.
