From the carpark, head down the gravel hill for 100 metres, then slip into the bush on the right. Follow Puhinui Stream Forest Trail, you will then come back on to the gravel road where you began, approx 1.5k. Head right, up the incline, then left before the playground back into the bush and back on to Puhinui Stream Forest Trail. Turn right over the bridge, and up, then keep to the right at the top. Back onto gravel, stay to the right. You go through a field, then turn left onto Bridal Path. I then like to do a little out-and-back up to the highest point up to the left behind the houses on Goodwood Drive. Then follow Bridal Path down to the left and you will start on the mountain bike tracks. Follow the 'long' or 'intermediate' track the whole way around in a loop, to bring you back on to Bridal Path, then up the gravel road back to the carpark

I did it!
  • Access

    An easy drive, just 5 minutes off the Southern Motorway. Exit at Hill Road, drive past the Botanic Gardens, take the first left down Charles Prevost Drive, approx 1km down, turn left at the roundabout on to Wairere Road, carpark is at the end of the road on the right.

    There is a very large carpark here. Relatively secure, but best not to leave your valuables in the car. Public transport is definitely an option too. Many buses passing by.

    All the mountain bike tracks eventually come back to the same place. None of them are exceptionally long

    Perfect throughout.

    Lightweight fleece top, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.

    Take your own.

    Mountain bike tracks get quite slippy in steeper areas after rain, and may be prone to slips.
