      Whitford Forest has reopened for riding as of March 2018. Note that there are several beehives adjacent to the forest roads. If you are allergic to bees, please carry an Epipen.

      Whitford forest offers some technical and challenging MTB tracks, these often have sections which are steep, off camber, slippery (especially when wet) and exposed to tree roots; caution is required.

      Some of the tracks are tricky, or even unridable, during/after winter rains. All tracks run at their best in summer. Although they’re all rideable on an XC bike, you’ll get maximum enjoyment if you have a dropper post.

      Whitford Forest is private land. Please join PCBC (http://www.pcbc.co.nz) for access and maps.

      Day Passes are available at Prenzel in Whitford and Gas Maraetai Service Station for $10. All proceeds go towards the upkeep of the tracks.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country

      Access Info:
      Access is via the top of the passing lane on Siberia hill, 600 Whitford Maraetai Rd at the gravel area. Ride up the road through the two sets of gates. Or alternately from the gate 1km up Waikopua Road. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN YOUR CAR.
