Mountain Biking Baikie Hut

**   Add a review
#216 of 387 mountain bike trails in New Zealand

This 18km out-and-back ride on generally smooth four wheel drive tracks goes up the expansive Twizel River flats to a little old four bunk back-country hut used by hikers and deer stalkers.

It makes for a nice day ride or a mellow overnight back-country adventure amongst the towering foothills of the Southern Alps. You don't get views over Lake Pukaki or the high peaks that are just behind the big up close hills.

Something you'll notice is how pine trees are starting to smother the New Zealand high-country.

    This is a ride that takes you into inspiring back-country without extracting pain! Your altitude gain over the 9km ride in is about 200 metres but the gradient is very gentle - just enough to make for a fast and fun ride back.
