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, 7 April 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.
