Notes:

Yamamoto is not a trail I would recommend riding it is highly rutted, very boggy and chewed out by motorbikes.  I was sent careering out of slippery ruts on more than one occasion.

I had planned on riding Yamamoto as an exit for Stimpy and or SNOT, but the Stimpy trail is no longer, gone due to logging, the old exit of SNOT was seemingly blocked by a sheep fence, as was riding around the Seismic Station from the direction of Nooky.  It turned out to be quite an ordeal to get to the top of Yamamoto and the ride certainly didn't reward the effort.

In this video I continued on further beyond the end of Yamamoto along a trail that appears to be unnamed, It took me back to Orchard Rd, the main fire trail heading off from the car park.

Not Recommended

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.
