Mountain Biking Coro DH

***   Add a review
#128 of 387 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#7,621 in the world

The Coro DH is breathtaking with lots of drops, jumps and berms. It's a steep down hill run rated for expert riders but it's not extreme. Thanks to wide open spaces and the absence of trees, it's less likely to maim you than most down hill trails but it is steep and rocky at the top. It mellows out as it goes down.Overall it's not as challenging as Coronet Peak's other downhill trail - the Slip Saddle.

It starts near the top of the Coronet Peak ski field's main chairlift but that is normally closed in summer. Access is by biking up the Coro XC trail. It ends at the ski field base building.

Getting there
The Coro DH starts from the top main chairlift at the Coronet Peak ski field. The chair lift does not normally operate in summer so you have to ride up the Coro XC trail. You'll see how to get to that trail on it's own page.

    The problem with the Coronet DH is that you have to ride up to it! It's a good downhill trail but it's not up there with the best of them. The panoramic views are stunning all the way down so be sure to take a few breaks!
