A running/mountain biking track around Mt. Vernon connecting the Rapaki and Bowenvale tracks.

Features Views

Mountain bikers have the right of way, so head phones are not recommended.

Description

This multiuse track connects the the Bowenvale Traverse (west) and the Witch Hill Track (east) to make a longer track. It sidles around Mt. Vernon from the Bowenvale saddle to the Rapaki Saddle. It is a gentle grade for running and much easier than taking the Crater Rim Walkway over the top of Mt. Vernon. It climbs almost continuously from the Rapaki Track side.

Flora & Fauna

Tussock grassland.
