Whitford

About

Excellent trail network, bit muddy during winter, quite a few XC and Freeride options here.

Pohutokawa Coast Bike Club have secured access, you need a permit to ride there. in 2012 it was only $25, they provide maps for both Whitford and Maraetai and support the local trail builders.

How to get there.

About 4o mins from the CBD, head out via Whitford Village, towards Maraetai, 6km past the round you’ll head up the hill with a passing lane, look out for the carpark on the right, head up the road from there to the trails.
