Onepu Mountain Bike Park

Length: 10.0 km

The Onepu Mountain Bike Park is a great place for all types of riders. The terrain is flat to rolling, which means there is only gentle climbing  - even the smallest member of your group will make it around the trails.

The Park is on privately-owned land but is open to the public thanks to the generosity of Norske Skog Tasman.

The Rides

There are four main single-track MTB trails:

  1. The Outback, which is a great entry and exit trail to the park
  2. Pai’s Pathway, which is a gentle climb up to the top of the ridge
  3. Oh Mai-Mai, which is a shared-use trail for MTBers and walkers, and zig-zags down to Lake Tamurenui
  4. Hedgehog, which is a fun, downhill way to end your ride

The Ridge Loop is a shared-use 4WD style track which offers an alternative way to connect the four main single-tracks while adding in some additional climbing and downhill.  

The Sandpit is BMX-style jumps that will keep the whole tribe happy. Get some big air or simply roll over the top. Either way it will put a smile on your dial!

Once done with the biking, you can enjoy a walk around the Onepu Wetlands, which are beautifully framed with graceful boardwalks.
