Explore the most popular Mountain Biking trails in Manawatu-Wanganui with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Clear day with 23-25deg. We took the left hand path and zigzagged up through the pine forest. The canopy provides good cover on a hot day. Nice assortment of pines, ferns and foxglove. Very few others using the trail, so a good quiet option. Excellent view of wider Levin region from the top(lookout on left side), will do the other lookout another time.

Kind of steep at the start, but still a good walk

It's hard work going up but coming down was easy....

A wonderful hike. Go left before the first hill for an easier Forrest walk or go straight up the drive for a more intense uphill walk. Carry on until you come across the lookout on the left.

Love the steep walk...easy walk and enjoyable

Great walk on this trail. Well marked but be warned the walk up is very steep - great for getting the heart rate up! Recommend for the gorgeous views of Horowhenua

Great track for a days 4x4. Most of it is straight forward on gravel roads, but beware though as there are a few bits where you will need help to get through the bogs that can be there. Your paint will take a pounding so be prepared for that. Very remote so bring spares and plenty of tools for repairs. Only open during summer months for 4x4 and can only go in one direction. Overall a solid 9/10 track.
