RideNZ-image290m of elevation at the highest peak allows tremendous views across the Bay and plenty of scope for a huge variety of trails, currently with approx 50km of purpose-built cross-country, freeride and downhill trails, plus many km of quiet forestry roads and 4×4 tracks to cater for all levels of rider ability – from the novice beginner through to the experienced professional. Refer to the above notice for which areas are currently closed.

Enquiries about these trails, please contact the HBMTBC Parks Manager – Ross Mepham, 022 544 0069, or ross.parks@nowmail.co.nz

 

In an Emergency – If you have a serious accident that requires an ambulance to get into the Waipunga, Replanted, Mill or Pakuratahi blocks, then you need to send someone to the Pan Pac Mill Security Gates to get a gate key to let the ambulance in.

RESCUE LABELS: You will find a rescue ID label on all track signs and map boards, each with a unique ID# and a GPS point. These ID# are marked on a trail map that are in every Ambulance in the district & the rescue chopper – meaning you only need to give the ID# to locate where an injured rider is. Note – mobile reception is a bit non-existent in the lower /valley areas of the forest.
