      Nelson's newest MTB park - 170 hectares of private forest, with 24 hour public access.
      A core network of fun trails, with well graded single track climbing trails forming a backbone from the bottom of the property to the top. Plenty of down options to ride, all with their own character.
      As at Feb 2016, 12km of trail is in place, with an end of 2016 target of 40km the goal.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
