Maitai Face (full) Details
Maitai Face (full) is a steep, well made downhill track that is also trail bike friendly. It's super steep in places (over 50%). Built in pine forest it's off camber, rooty, has steep corners and is challenging. In the dry it has loads of grip - in the wet not so much. It finishes on the Maitai Valley Road opposite the golf club. The climb is not technical but hard work, worth it though.
You need a Hancock Forest Permit to ride this trail. You can get a 2 week permit from bike shops in Nelson for $10 or you get an annual one included in your NMTBC membership (www.nelsonmtb.club). Without a permit you are trespassing and liable for prosecution - plus it's a bad look for mountain bike access.
