This is the main loop of the Heritage Forest Park MTB Area. While not an absolute beginner track, it is the next step up once you have worked out how to stay on your bike Easy Rider is well sign posted and loops around most of the Heritage Forest. A mixture of forest roads and easy winding beginers single track. Good track for families and kids who are competent riders from five and up usually love this track, though bikes with gears make it a lot more fun! Once ridden you will find yourself going around again and again! Links nicely to Snakes & Ladders Trail or Perseverance Trail

Trails are mostly hand built by the Hanmer MTB Club. With limited sources of income we would appreciate your donation or become a member https://www.hanmermtb.nz/ . Maps can be purchased from the Bike Shop in Hanmer or the Isite

      Vegetation is slightly overgrown on some areas, but not a major issue. Tree routes are exposed on several locations, ride with care!
