I can vouch for Colin, Rata ridge is a personal favourite!

Have to add Vertigo and T3 for Makara Peak. In Wainuiomata there is a Rata Ridge and the new Towhai Traverse which are great. The Akatarawas are amazing too, I enjoy slow, technical, jungle style rides such as Mt Holdsworth area or Smiths Creek out of Kaitoke. Belmont Trig, Cannon Point, Spoonhill, Karapoti, Roaring Stag Are all great too

just back from south: trails across the river in Alex(andra) are top 10 for sure. Find a local and ride Watson & AC etc, just awesome. Unlike anything I've ridden in NZ.

Sth Island top 10:
Kill Devil
Craigieburn/ Draco/Hogs
Watson (alex)
Fowlers Pass (St James)
Cass Saddle in & out(not lagoon)
Heaphy (both ways)
Peaking ridge
Kirwans
Barron Flat
Whites Bay

old ghost rd will make the list when it's finished....

Is Watson the one where you ride past Alex's sewerage plant at the start then through wild herbs and large glacial rocks. The track moves across the rocks trials style and the landscape is almost desert like. Truley unique . At the end you pass apricot orchards laden with fruit accessable from the track

That's AC. Yeah fun eh. Watson is similar, a bit more aesthetic and a bit more committing. You get to Watson from the road up the hill behind the clock, cross the fence and traverse south. Not sure I'd find it again without a local.

All the land behind the clock at Alexandra is private farm land and is not open the the general public. The landowners have been upset by people posting trail descriptions and maps online, then others being on their land without permission. The landowners are now starting to issue trespass notices.

Please respect the landowners wishes.

That single track jungle ride I haven't done yet

Te Iringa must be on my list now.

Boobies - Three Sisters have been worked over by wheelspinny type motor cycles. Still get ridden, but probably not in my top 10. There is other good riding in the Akatarawas though.
