Mr. Twister was edited and extended by Empire of Dirt and also Velstand Trails in 2019. It is a wide open Grade 3 flow trail. This trail is an ideal one for progressing on as it is a safe way down the hill and our recommended park EXIT trail for Grade 3 riders.

Mr Twister starts opposite the end of Riff Raff at the Container hub on Arapuke Rd. As the name suggests this trail has many berms, twists and turns Riders can take a sedate pace, or if they let off the brakes gain a pretty good speed! The trail acts as a link for riders wanting to return to the Shuttle Pickup. The trail also continues from the Shuttle Pickup down to Back Track, where you can ride a short section of Back Track (caution 2 way traffic) back to the bridge and Kahuterawa Car Park.

Access Info

Accessed from the Container Hub. The trail exit is onto Back Track, via the Shuttle Pickup.
