This is one of the few trails open to mountain bikers in New Zealand National Parks. The premium trail open to mountain bikers in Kahurangi National Park is the famous Heaphy Track but that is multi-day and requires a long shuttle. So this trail is an alternative ride through the stunning and doomed Jurassic beach forest of Kahurangi National Park. If ridden as a shuttle the access road up to Flora Car Park is long, winding, steep and bumpy. If ridden as an out-and-back trail you're in for an epic 60 odd kilometre ride that climbs, then descends 900 metres not counting undulations along the way!
