3 kms of steady climb to the 900m summit then 17kms down hill yes thats right. track is a mix of gravel one third grass and dirt two thirds. a real BUZZ track but be warned there are some VERY slippery parts. howards lodge will pick you up at the bottom.

Summary:
Fishers track I found to be unsafe, barbed wire was found place across resulting in my bike get tangled in it and me been thrown forward over my handle bars, the multiple injuries is sustained, should never happened.
Fishers track should be a safe bike riding zone, not a death trap.
I advise other riders to be cautious when riding this track. It would be ranging from level 2-3 not level 1 as they have graded on public sites.
The roads when coming out of Fishers track are horrible to cycle on they are very rocky and found my bike tyres slipping and hitting huge lumps of gravel, I also found the environment quiet boring, farm land the full length of the way. I would rate Fishers track a 1/10 and I do not recommend this track.
There are more interesting and fun tracks like old coach road, which I rate 10/10.
Don't waste your time with Fishers track!

Summary:
Great downhill trail, 4wd track width, gets pretty muddy in winter.

Recommended Route:
Make sure you know where you'll end up!!!

The track comes out at Kurua road, which is 20-odd kms away from Raurimu. Best bet is to get one of the lodges to arrange pickup, or to leave a car at the Kurua/Upper Retaruke intersection.
