Tired of Koru and looking for an alternative to the usual intermediate or grade 3 lap of Makara Peak?

Try parking at Karori Park or Muds Cycles and head up to the entrance on St Albans Ave.

Rimu, Miro and the recently opened Magic Carpet loop are a great way to warm up with some gentle singletrack before heading up and over the suspension bridge to the summit. The suggested route follows the grade 3 trails back to the main carpark. Alternatively you could head north down Zac's, Varleys and Wahine or pick and choose your decent based on what takes your fancy.
