      Part of Sandy Point Recreation Area has been designated by the Invercargill City Council for mountain bike use. The Southland Mountain Bike Club has done a great job building and maintaining the trails out here.

      Grades range from Easy to Intermediate in this flat section of pine forest. The soil is sandy so drains very well during rain.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: City Managed
      Sandy Point Car Park google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Either ride the 11km's from Invercargill along the tracks and cycle lanes, or there is a car park at the main entrance on Sandy Point Rd.
