Halswell Project

During 2012 we built a new track, called C2, in the forest next to Halswell Quarry on Dan’s land.  It starts at the same place as the Crocodile Track and merges in with the Crocodile again about half way up, just after you exit the forest.  This track has proved to be quite popular with intermediate riders (and walkers and runners!) and is the first of several small sections of singletrack we plan to build on this property to complement the older Crocodile, Low Rd and Siberia Tracks. The next track we built was Deviation, on the opposite side of the valley when you emerge from the trees at the top of C2. Work started on this in autumn 2013 and Deviation opened at the end of 2013. In 2015 we built a track in the pines, called Lower Deviation – this is an extension of Deviation and meets up with C2 and the Crocodile at the cattlestops going into Halswell Quarry.  In 2016 Murphs was built which is a more raw technical trail that has been quite popular. We also tweaked the lower section of Deviation. Also in 2016 Allister started building several lines in the Crocodile paddock and higher up, and tweaked some existing trails like the Low Rd. 2017 sees the start of a series of new tracks, with the first being a couple of wee gems tucked in behind the noticeboard area. We will then move up to the Five Poplars paddock before returning to the forest to create a few more fun tracks. All of this is done with volunteer labour – if you would like to be involved please let us know… craig@singletrack.org.nz

Living Springs

In 2016 we celebrated 10 years from when we first began digging at Living Springs. We also created a new section of singletrack in Totara Gully which means you now do not need to climb up the steep 4WD track.
