Review: Raincliff Forest is not extensive - about 2km from one end to the other - but you need to go with a local to find the good singletrack. The map board at the car park is sketchy and out of date. There are signs at the beginning of some trails but before long you'll meet a fork with no sign. There is no good climbing singletrack. You ride up Middle Valley Road, then a 4wd track which takes you to the top of the forest. McKay Track no longer exists so take Hoare Track until you lose it by taking the wrong fork! Don't worry though, you'll soon pop out on Middle Valley Road. Then you can climb back to the top and try other forks till you've had enough. Despite some nice singletrack features here and there, Rainclilff forest doesn't really cut it as a mountain bike park. It's isolated too - a 40 minute drive from Timaru.
