Mountain Biking Bowenvale Traverse Track

****   Add a review
#111 of 381 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#8427 in the world

The Bowenvale Traverse Track is a 3 km track rated easy but it is quite narrow and a little concave. There are some optional small jumps but no real technical action.

After a short stint in pine forest it sidles round the hill parallel with the Summit Road on open tussock fields with stunning views down over the city and beyond.

It's a two way track and is congested on fine weekend days.

Getting there
From Christchurch head up Dyers Pass Road, turn left into Summit Road and you'll come to a car park on your left in less than a kilometre. You're at the top of the Victoria Park downhill tracks so keep an close eye out for the track on your right about 10 metres below the car park. Don't carry on down the hill!!!

    This trail won't strain your muscles and on a fine day you are bound to feel the magic of the Port Hills - the wide open spaces and the expansive views - as your wheels whir along the smooth flowing track.
