      MARAETAI FOREST HAS RE-OPENED.

      Maraetai Forest - A secluded range of native and pine trails from XC to AM and some full on DH. The park is managed by Pohutukawa Coast Bike Club and requires a membership and riding permit to access the trails and shuttle days. Day passes ($10) are available from the G.A.S. Service Station in Maraetai (131 Maraetai Drive).

      After recent logging, substantial time and effort has been invested in rebuilding old tracks, and creating some new ones. Track styles vary from relatively easy flowy goodness, to techy, off-camber challenges.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
