About the park:
Some of Auckland’s newest MTB trails, located just off the Manukau Motorway exit is it the perfect pace for a mid week spin. The trails are a mix of beginner to intermediate, gentle grades, but challenging at pace. Currently there is a network of around 10-12km.
Check out the Friends of Totara Park for the latest news on the trails.
Auckland MTB Club are working with the Friends of Totara Park to further extend the network
How to get there:
Appox 20 mins drive from the CBD, travel south along SH1, take the Manukau Exit onto Redoubt Road, head east for about 1.5kms, you’ll see the park entrance to the right.
From the carpark you’ll get a great view of the park and trails you’ll be riding. After you park, head down the gravel road for 100m, on your left you’ll see a mapboard, take the trail to the left down to the Hub, there are a few options from there.

Visibile from the Hub, an easy loop of a few 100 metres, great trail to give kids a taste of biking, all the while visible from the Hub
This is an excellent tour of the park, starts from The Hub. From open area’s meandering along checking out the view, to the tight wooded sections and zipping along the gully’s, a must do at Totara Park.
Also starts at the Hub, once you’ve mastered the easy trail check out this one, it is a bit tighter, and more challenging at speed.
