Trail Description
About this trail
There is an extensive network of trails in three blocks: Waipunga, Tait and Mill. You need a $10 permit to ride these trails because they are in a production pine forest on private land. Pick up a permit, which comes with a map and is good for three weeks from a local bike shop or information centre. Alternatively join the Hawkes Bay MTB Club.
MILL BLOCK is the newest and best with more sophisticated trails with berms, bumps, jumps, and curves that flow, thrill and challenge.
TAIT BLOCK is the smallest but still quite extensive with mainly intermediate trails on the hillside and a very nice beginners trail called Nemo on the flat.
WAIPUNGA BLOCK is by far the largest block with enough trails to keep you smiling for days.
They are all in a production forest and get closed from time to time due to logging or thinning activities. When you pick up your permit be sure to check the current status of each block.. Or check the Hawke's Bay Mountain Bike Club website at

Review: With 100km of singletrack and 40km of forest road, this is a large bike park with something for everyone - beginner to expert. It's in three main blocks of a production forest. Unfortunately, when the foresters get busy the bikers have to stay away and visitors need a $10 permit...
