Trail Description
About this trail
The trails are wide, smooth and carpeted in pine needles as they wind their way through pine trees and pungas. Surprisingly for a pine forest, there are no gnarly roots.

But I didn't find many sweeping berms, rollers, speed bumps, jumps and the other fun stuff expected in a modern bike park. And these trails tend to surrender height too easily. There is not much here for absolute beginners or experts. That said, intermediate riders will find these rides pleasant enough, and because they're wide, there's a good margin for error so you can often get up a bit of speed.

The park is visitor friendly with plenty of signs and some map boards but best to pick up a map from the Tokoroa information centre or bike shops or download from www.tokoroamtb.co.nz.

Review: New track up grades with Southstar Trails. Original trails were old school straight up and straight down. New big cat trails such as speedy cheetah etc have a good switch back climb followed by Rotorua like grade 3 and 4 gradual descents. Use to ride here on occassion from the late 90s through to now and would have rated the place pretty low. Now I prefer it to Rotorua for trail riding.

Similar Trail: Huckleberry hound, Little red riding huck mixed with corners.

Review: The trails are in great condition - very enjoyable riding but not offering the thrills and fun of the likes of Whaka Forest Network.
