Greenwood Park Track is a spectacular ride that offers dramatic views of the Southern Alps, Kaikoura ranges and coastal cliffs. There are short technical sections that make this a more challenging ride.

There is a small car park at the top of Mt Pleasant Road. The track is well sign posted and is on the right side of the road heading out to Godley Head.

The start of the track is mostly fast flowing single track with some technical rocky sections. Descend gradually onto Evans Pass.

From Evans Pass join the Godley Head track on the other side of Evans Pass on the Godley Head Road.

Access Info

Start at the track approximately 200m from the top of Mt Pleasant Road.

 The top part of this track above Grasslands track is mostly open paddock. Fast and fun and of course epic views at the summit but Grasslands offers more singletrack.
