Trail Description
About this trail
Rabbit Island is a forested reserve about 25km east of Nelson City. The Great Taste Trail goes through it, entering by the road and exiting by the Mapua ferry. The island is popular in summer for the beach, BBQs and biking.

The little bike park is good for beginners with about 3km of easy trails that meander through the pine forest. The trails are curvy, gently undulating and there are even some slightly banked corners. In a grassed area there are a couple of flat topped logs for skill building. The beach is just metres away for a cool off after the ride.

After a few circuits of the park its fun to ride to Mapua and cross over on the ferry for a wander round the shops, a beer or an ice cream.

Review: This little bike park with it's easy tracks through the pine forest has a lot of potential for beginners. But it's rather short and could do with better signage. Still, there is lots of easy riding all over the island which is a great place to spend a summer's day.
