ome and explore the beautiful network of tracks in the Flagstaff-Nicols Creek area, just to the north of Dunedin at the Glow Worms 3 hour rogaine.
There is nearly 600 metres of elevation range in the event area. Below 500 m the area is mainly native bush with some nice creeks and grassy clearings, as well as a small amount of parkland/streets. Above 500 m the area is a mix of open scrub/long grass/tussock with some excellent views over Dunedin.
Tracks range from well-formed vehicle tracks and footpaths (e.g. the well-known Pineapple Track) to minor and infrequently used routes. To the east of Nicols Creek is a popular gravelled mountain bike track (Nicols Track) that snakes it way up towards the Flagstaff-Swampy ridge.
