Mountain Biking John McDonald Loop

  Add a review
#312 of 387 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#21,839 in the world

This circuit is mainly on gravel road or four wheel drive track and more than a kilometer is unridable. Don't go there in bad weather or after rain and be prepared for a tough wilderness adventure.
