40km trail - Pelorus Bridge to Nelson over the infamous Maungatapu - the Sacred Mountain.

From the picturesque and tranquil Pelorus Bridge Reserve riders follow a gravel road approximately 12km to the foot of the Maungatapu.

An 8km climb to the saddle at 740m passes 'Murderers Rock' - from here there's an 8km descent into the Maitai Valley, known to be technical, where many an experienced rider has misjudged sections and 'bit the dust'.

Around 12km (a mix of gravel and seal) takes riders to the finish at Sunday Hole, Maitai Valley.
