The Waitangi Mountain Bike Park (WMBP) in the Waitangi Endowment Forest is located in one of the most beautiful places in the world, the Bay of Islands.
The WMBP provides the perfect introduction to mountain biking with lots of easy, scenic trails that you can take at your own pace. It currently offers approx 20 trails of varying difficulty with great flow and features, from introductory downhill riding, jump trails, cross country and beginner trails. The trail network, designed by Jeff Carter from Southstar Trails, has grown rapidly over the past six months and the trails cater to all levels of ability. There are plenty of fast, flowing berms, rollers and jumps. Grade 2 and 3 runs are so well built, they’re still fun for more advanced riders.
The initial trail design and development has focused on the family friendly grades with most of the trails built grade 2 (easy, 3 (intermediate),some grade 4 (advanced) and few Grade 5 (Expert) tracks. The downhill trails milk the most out of the vertical elevation available providing a lot of fun for a small amount of climbing
All up there are five zones to be developed (70-80km!!) so there’s plenty more trail development planned in the years to come. Check out all the awesome trails and riding options here!
