Set in a mixture of native bush, pine forest and some recently cleared forest terrain, riders at Whangamatā Ridges Mountain Bike Park will experience fun singletrack, exciting downhills and climbs that reward the effort with spectacular views of ocean and forest.
Located just five minutes from the Whangamatā Township on State Highway 25, the park offers something for everyone, from the first-time rider to experts looking to be challenged.
The park is located in Matariki Forest 4km north of Whangamatā, a commercial pine forest. One-day and annual passes are available via the Hivepass app under "WMTBP" and you must have a valid pass to ride. Watch out for some wicked enduro and cross-country events too, and remember as a park run by volunteers, a little time on the tools is always appreciated.
The tracks are shared with production forestry operations; this means that from time to time the tracks are closed due to logging activity. When this is occurring there is signage in place. It is essential for everyone's safety that these signs are obeyed. Logging and extreme weather can close the park, so please check the Facebook page for updated access information.
