Swampy Summit circuit

Find out on this page some details about Swampy Summit circuit.

Travel up Stuart Street, and down into Kaikorai Valley. Keep KFC on your left and veer onto Taieri Road. Continue the slog uphill almost to the top of Three Mile Hill Road. Turn right onto Flagstaff-Whare Flat Road by the big water tank on your left.

Cruise on the gravel up to the top of the hill to the "Bull Pen" carpark. From here you can go clockwise or anticlockwise. Either direction requires some hill work.

Head down Flagstaff-Whare Flat Road until you reach an intersection, and turn right onto Swampy Summit Road. when you reach a locked gate, hop over it and then bike up a long gravel switchback to the top (Swampy Summit, 739m).

Just past the doppler radar a 4WD track veers right. After ~100m, a grassy undulating track veers hard right. Travel along this all the way back to the Bull Pen. To ride anticlockwise, head up the 4WD track "Swamp Ridge Track" from the Bull Pen, following the route in reverse.

Do not ride up the Pineapple Walkway - this track is for walkers only.
