Click through to see the run course map and read the course description.

Some technical running and some easy running with one significant climb at the start of your run. Great Views on the Ridgeline, great bush in the valley. Start in the Catchpool Loop carpark and head into the Orongorongo Track. Take a right onto Butchers Track and climb up to the ridgeline. Turn left onto Cattle Ridge track and follow all the way down until it hits The Orongorongo Track. Take a left and head back to the carpark. The descent on the last km of Cattle Ridge is a little technical so take care at this point.
