Bubble Wrap Details
An unsanctioned old school all mountain trail with minimal flow and lots of technical challenges and a few superb viewpoints. Best ridden with a new-school AM bike. Some excellent open ridge portions with sparse vegetation and lots of fun on the rocks. Riding it south to north will put you in the extreme north end of Mt Work park and far from everything else. This trail is beyond the Hartland Bike Park boundary. It is unsanctioned. It is not maintained by the local bike society, the South Island Mountain Bike Society (SIMBS).
Access from the south via North Ridge and Breathless with a short 50m walk/ride traverse of the Mt. Work hiking trail until the left (north) turn towards Bubble Wrap proper. Exit at the north end also involves riding/walking a short section of the Mt. Work trail. Look out for hikers and be nice.
