Great MTB park, costs $10 for a day ticket, but the season passes are great value at about $120. Good mix of trails, but because of the forestry that has happened it is a 10 min ride to get from the car park to the trail head, but it’s a good warm up. Coffee shop and shop at the base, great place to relax after a ride. The do hire bikes and helmets if you need. Dogs not allowed at the weekends - sadly.
This is a great place for mountain bikers of all abilities. Only a 40 min drive from central Auckland, you can bring your own bike or hire one. They supply helmuts too. I love cycling through the forest and find it fun and relaxing. After a good hard ride I like to have a Jesters Pie from Pie van or a hot chocolate at the cafe. The staff here are really nice and helpful too. A great place for the whole family.
