Collection of 9 mtb tracks with steep climbs and downhill runs next to Lake MangaBe sure you get the map of the park from the New Plymouth Mountain Bike Club website - www.npmtb.co.nz - before heading out. Finding the good singletrack can be confusing first time out.
There is one main forestry road that goes roughly north-south through the park. Lake Mangmahoe is on the left; most of the mountain bike trails are on the right.
The trails vary a lot but in general they are fairly old-school. That means that they meander through the forest without a lot of fun stuff like jumps, berms, and so on. But some of the best trails which do include features expected in a modern bike park hang off the old forestry road called Ridge Track. They include Let it Roll, AnticlimAX, Mandatory Powerplay, Track the Ripper and Stumpy's Mayhem which ends up near the park entrance.
