      Paneiri Trails have been developed by volunteers over a number of years starting when Allied Concrete owned the site and are largely narrow multi user trails. In combination with the PNCC Ahimate Park development a more machine built loop trail named Pink Panter was added with a great pump line. These trails are used by the Manawatu Mountain Bike Club for rider development so a skills area with 2 lines has been added to teach jumps, bunny hops, balance, drop off and manuals. Many of the other trails have features useful for learning skills too although the area lacks hills other than the stop bank which is well used during rider development. The trails when ridden as a combo are nearly 7 km long and have lots of sharp turns requiring consistent effort to maintain a constant speed which means they have good exercise/training value.
      The wider area extending south via a trail named Link (following Tip Road) includes the Piwakawaka jump and trials park. And the Loopy trail from Piwakawaka back to the main northern trail area is built on the privately owned Dune Block (everything south of the Maxwells Line limestone track) with the kind permission of the owner.

      Directions: By car travel along Maxwells Line toward the Manawatu River and then up and just over the stop bank to the outer car park to start the combo loop or Mites track. Or continue down the driveway around the left to the back of the inner car park where the map board and skills area are on your left.
      By bike or on foot either branch off the Mangaone Stream path way which joins up with Maxwells Line or continue south on the Manawatu Riverside Path past the He Ara Kotahi pedestrian bridge and Ahimate Park and look for the gravel road on your right to the inner car park.
