The Kanuka Killer Trail Run is an inspiring bush trail run to be staged in the Central Otago area of Bendigo just near Cromwell on Saturday, 30 June 2018.
The trail has a complex variety of trail to test all abilities and is one of my top picks in the region for sheer fun!
The trail starts after traversing some open country; from here the track starts to get fun and winds through the Kānuka Scenic Reserve in the Chinamans Creek catchment. The track climbs into a typical Lower Dunstan Mountains landscape to pass through re-generated Kānuka forest and impressive rocky crags with magnificent views over Lake Dunstan and the Upper Clutha Valley.
It then runs around the back of Chinamans Creek gully, before traversing a ridge and following the front ridge line that faces the Upper Clutha Valley. Deep in Chinamans Creek there are stone hut ruins, along with several relics of earlier years.
