The Waitangi Mountain Bike Park is located in one of the most beautiful places in the world, the Bay of Islands. Heaps of awesome riding!!
It provides the perfect all round option for mountain biking for any time of the year with a mix of easy, scenic trails that you can take at your own pace as well as some hardcore riding.
It currently offers almost 50km of varying difficulty trails with great flow and features, from downhill riding, jump trails, cross country and beginner trails. The trail network, designed by Jeff Carter from Southstar Trails (think Redwoods in Rotorua) has grown rapidly over the past couple of years and the trails cater to all levels of ability from beginners to advanced riders. 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 expert riders- some of the best in New Zealand
The initial trail design and development has focused a range of trail grades: many Grade 2 (easy), Grade 3 (intermediate), Some epic Grade 4 (advanced) and a few intense 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!.
