Mountain Biking Codgers Mountain Bike Park

****   Add a review
#27 of 381 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#2898 in the world

It's a fine mountain bike park partly set in a pine forest. Unfortunately, those trees were being harvested when I was there so I only got to ride the eastern side of the park. ---

I rode up Tantragee Road to the Pipeline track then went up Jack's Track, followed by the Summit-Fireball Link to the Fireball skid. All that to gain 200 odd metres of altitude! But then the fun started with a thrilling ride down Firball (yes, Firball, not Fireball). Then I went back up to the Fireball Skid and rode down IV Line (pronounced eye-vee-line). It's another good trail, narrow, windy and tight. From there I should have picked up the Dun Mountain Trail back to the car park but didn't know any better and rode down the road. ---

Hopefully someone else will review the rest of the park when it's all back in business! If it's as good as the part I sampled then it's going to be a fairly extensive network with lots of fun trails...

Getting there
The usual place to start is on Brook Street, more or less opposite Blick Terrace. Alternatively carry on up Brook Street till you get to Tantragee Street where there is a car park just around the corner.
Before you head on out you could pick up an entry permit and map from a local bike shop. You can download a trail map from the Nelson mountain bike club's website: http://nelsonmtb.club/

    Reviewing Te Ara Koa:
    *****

    A very fun, moderately technical, hand built, rocky & rooty track of over 5Km descent through native bush. The top section has some rooty challenges but nothing too extreme. It gets faster and flowier in the middle section. After you cross the Dun Mountain trail it gets a bit more challenging again on the final section (a.k.a. Tracky McTrackface) where it gets narrower and steeper with a few root drops.

    Just out of town, this mountain bike park in a pine forest is lots of fun even with half of it closed for logging operations...
