      Porirua has a small scatter of trails around and provides access to Belmont and Battle Hill regional park.

      The Mana Cycle Group is focusing all its efforts on creating a Trail park on Rangituhi/Colonial Knob.
      This project has started to be implemented with long term plans in the final stages of planning.

      Trails don't just build themselves, everyone is welcome along to trail working parties.The more people,the more work that gets done, the more generally enjoyable it is, and we get a great sense of community and involvement.

      Trailforks is a great site to help you and your friends to navigate Porirua's trails, share your reviews/ratings, and integrate your ride-logs to help provide great statistics on our region to persuade the council to let us build more trails.
