The Waitangi Mountain Bike Park is a purpose built mountain bike park with over 50km of world class trails built by the professionals. There are tracks to suit all abilities from families and novices to experts! All our trips include a high quality, new full-suspension or front suspension mountain bike, helmet, map, trail advice, as well a padded Gel Seat (for extra comfort), and also the mountain bike park entry which is a donation to trail building and trail maintenance- Keeping the community park going!
We are also more than happy to give you a free and complimentary shuttle from our HQ here in Paihia to the Mountain Bike Park (and return). We are only 3km from the start of the tracks so it is easy to ride there as well
The Waitangi Mountain Bike Park provides the perfect introduction to mountain biking with lots of easy, scenic trails that you can take at your own pace. It currently offers over 20 trails (50km) of varying difficulty with great flow and features, from introductory downhill riding, jump trails, cross country, beginner trails and loads of tracks for the experts too. Designed by Jeff Carter from Southstar Trails, who also built the world-class trails in the Redwoods, Rotorua, the trail network has grown rapidly over the past six months and the trails cater to all levels of ability. There are plenty of fast, flowing berms, rollers and jumps. Grade 2 and 3 runs are so well built, theyre still fun for more advanced riders.
The initial trail design and development has focused on the family friendly grades with most of the trails built grade 2 (easy), 3 (intermediate),some grade 4 (advanced) and few Grade 5 (Expert) tracks. The downhill trails milk the most out of the vertical elevation available providing a lot of fun for a small amount of climbing
All up there are five zones to be developed (70-80km!!) so theres plenty more trail development planned in the years to come. Check out all the awesome trails and riding options here! We INCLUDE your ENTRY PASS to the park too- this goes straight back into Trail Building and Trail Maintenance, so we really couldn't do it without you!! Also we include PADDED GEL SEATS to make it that even bit more awesome!! Don't forget about the FREE TRANSPORT SHUTTLE as well to the start of the tracks
We stock brand new, quality Full-Suspension and Front Suspension Mountain Bikes, perfect for both the Waitangi Mountain Bike Park.

You couldn't live without it- especially in the Mountain Bike Park. The front suspension bikes are great as well- perfect for exploring and a do-it-all machine!
