Tukituki Trails and Gum Tree Mountain Bike Park

Mount Herbert Road, Waipukurau, Central Hawke's Bay, Hawkes Bay

Stretching out in both directions from Russell Park to the Swing bridge in the East to Lindsay Bush in the West, the Tukituki mountain bike tracks run alongside the limestone cycling trails in the Tukituki River berm. Weaving in the shade of the willow trees this grade 2 track is a great introduction to mountain biking.

Take the kids and have a go at each obstacle at your own pace or speed through and enjoy the challenge of this well maintained track. Though it is mostly flat the track has been engineered to offer a range of obstacles from sharp banked turns, tight twists, a few small bridges and a jump or two for the more experienced mountain biker.

From the Swing bridge you can choose to cross the river and continue back along the far side of the river in the berm tracks or turn off and try a bit of downhill mountain biking in Gum Tree Mountain Biking park.  

Gum Tree Mountain Bike Park is located at the end of Mt Herbert Road, Waipukurau this newly developed Mountain biking park has a number of tracks, ranging in difficulty and is a great day out for the whole family.
