“Get away from the Mount Wellington tourists.”— Matthew Kidd
The Zig Zag track is narrower and steep in places. It's the only section that merits rating this an intermediate/difficult run. The return is primarily by the Pinnacle Road which has little shoulder but limited traffic. However, the Panorama Track shortens the route by clipping off part of the road's hairpin turn while offering limited shade and a respite from traffic.
