Mountain Biking Hikuwai Loop

**   Add a review
#215 of 387 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#10,900 in the world

On the slopes above the Lake Wanaka Outlet beside Albert Town there is a reserve called the Hikuwai Conservation Area. Winding through the Manuka bushes of the reserve there is a bendy mountain bike trail called the Hikuwai Loop. It's grade 3 and curvy but has few other fun features apart from a few berms, jumps and squeezes.

There are dozens of unofficial trails threading through the bushes - keep your eye out for the little signs that will lead you round the loop.

    In Wanaka this is the trail for improving grade 2 riders. It is pleasant threading through the Manuka bushes and much of the trail is at grade 2 level and can be ridden quite fast as you follow its meanders.
