Mountain Biking Mt Vic Skills Area

**   Add a review
#262 of 387 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#14,737 in the world

As part of Wellington City Council's upgrade of the Mount Victoria mountain bike facilities, a skills area was added in mid 2009. The skills area consists of a circuit built in an open grassy area just off the Southern Mt Victoria track.
The circuit includes a variety of obstacles designed to build mountain biking skills and confidence. The obstacles include:
>a pair of offset see-saws (ie. the pivot is offset so that the see-saw always returns to the same position)
>a surface of artifical tree roots
>wooden ramps of various slopes
>slalom poles
>swing bridge
>a boardwalk that gets progressively narrower
>plastic matting, of the type sometimes used to reinforce track surfaces
>a rock garden.
The circuit is designed to be ridden in an anti-clockwise direction.

    I enjoyed a brief play in this area. The wooden drop off jumps were great at three different heights.
