      Timaru’s main mountain biking area is Centennial Park (widely known amongst locals as ‘The Scenic’), which forms the western (ish) town boundary. The area is popular with walkers, mountain bikers, and from time to time the odd pony. It is a lovely park in a small valley, with a mixture of native bush, pines, gums, oaks, and other exotic trees. A small lake and carpark lies at its heart, and a stream runs through the middle. It was quarried for rocks for harbour works in both the 19th and 20th centuries.
      The SCMTBC has built and maintains a number of trails that can be stitched together in a variety of different ways to make a fun ride. Some of the tracks must be linked up by using the walking tracks (shared use) that also run through the park. When riding on the walking tracks, remember to ride carefully and give way to pedestrians.
      Mountain Bike access to Centennial Park is at the grace of the council. We must respect the rules and the MTB Code if we want to keep riding here Do not ruin it for everyone else by being a turkey.
