      The trail network in Richmond Hills is a great place to ride if you like fun, flowing grade 3+ trails. Easily accessed from Easeby Park, off Marlborough Cresent, there is a grade 3 climbing track that takes you up to the main skid site. There is also fire road access from the end of Lodestone Road. From here you can take one of several grade 3/4 descending trails such as Loadstone Gully, or Bermed Monster. Tasman District Council manages the area, along with PF Olsen, and is working closely with NMTBC to develop this area further
