K2 Video trail guide – Grade 5 Rotorua Redwoods New Zealand

K2 is a steep grade 5 on the open side of the hill with fun, technical riding but lots to catch you out, it’s a good challenge.

In the video you’ll see the awkward, steep, tight corners and big off camber roots that make this a challenging track. When thinking about the days route its a very useful link from the Katore Road area over to the Hot X Buns and Hill Road Shuttle areas.

Trailforks says:

Steep, with big roots, drops and off-camber. Fast in the dry,harder in the wet.

(Note – I don’t ride it very fast at all this time down :/ )
