From the car park ride up the forest road. All the singletrack hangs off it and there are nice big signs showing trail names and grade. It's a visitor friendly bike park with several map boards! Pick a trail that matches your ability and go for it! You'll soon come back onto the road - the longest trail is less than two kilometres long.
There is a short easy "Kids Trail", a toilet, a donation box, notice board and a map in a hub not far up from the car park. The whole place has a very professional, well-sorted feel.
The local club has a website at: www.waipamtb.org.nz/ and they also have a Facebook presence.
