Anaconda

Start: Near Breezes Col, Godley Head.

Finish: Te Onepoto/Taylors Mistake car park. 

Access: From Sumner, head up Evans Pass Road. At the saddle turn left onto Godley Head Road. Travel approximately 4km east along the road to cross a cattle grid at a DOC Reserve Sign.  Anaconda starts nearby on the left.  Alternatively, ride the Godley Head MTB track to Breezes Col-ride 400m up the sealed road to the start of the track.

Signage: At tracks start.  None at the end, but an obvious finish into Te Onepoto/Taylors Mistake car park.

Description: The track is fun and engaging and descends through a dry, open, rocky tussock grassland landscape.  It weaves back and forth and has plenty of twists and turns with fantastic views over the Te Onepoto/Taylors Mistake area.

The lower section is well-formed with smooth berms that let you corner at speed. Some sections twist and turn and require a decent amount of concentration. Look out for the 1–2 foot jumps off to the side of the track.

It ends near the Godley Head Walkway. Take the traversing track above the Godley Head walking track into the Te Onepoto/Taylors Mistake car park.
