About this track

Description

This uni-direction single track weaves through typical Otago landscape featuring matagouri and tussock. There is a small section of shade on the track as it passes through the edge of a pine plantation. 

A selection of berms and tight corners appeal to intermediate mountain bikers, with easier riding options around rocks and other technical obstacles.

Riding the track in one direction means everyone travels in the same direction, which reduces the risk of collisions.

This is a shared-use track. Follow the mountain bikers code: respect others, respect the rules, respect the track.

The track was designed by Bike Wanaka and formed by local volunteers.

Getting there

The track starts across the stile from the northern end of the Albert Town camp grounds on SH6, 5 km from Wanaka. The track is situated on public conservation land between Albert Town and Dublin Bay.
