The Markara Peak mountain bike park is a real blast.
The handmade trails are a symphony of singletrack elegance. They'll take you to the summit without stretching your chain and they'll take you back down through brilliant berms, jumps, zigzags, humps and bends. Another amazing thing is that because the area is extensive, it's like you're on a cross country ride. The signage is thorough - you won't get lost. The views are wonderful. The regenerating native forest is at times like a green tunnel. Trail maintenance is excellent. This is a top-notch mountain bike park and it even has a wash down pad (and a toilet too).
There are several excellent map boards. If you're new to the park, have a good look at the one in the car park. Several loops are suggested. There will be one to suit you.
