Lower Utiwai Details
The Lower lookout climb is an easy grade to a point where in future there will become an easy lower loop.
The trail will be a great asset to the park for all through native vegetation. There are a couple sections where you will pass Miro and Rimu trees. The area has a lot of kohekohe canopy! The Utiwai line was originally scouted by Mana Cycle Group with some slight adjustments by the contractor during construction.
Please note the lower section is two way for bikes until consented loop is completed, riding down is only advised for those who are grade two riders and can't ride the upper intermediate section.
Starts from the carpark next to Camp Elsdon
We haven't officially heard from council, but tresspass notices and construction gates have come down
