Weir Two (Grade 3 - Intermediate)

Weir Two is a more challenging climb from the bottom hub up to McGouns Road. It zig-zags up the hill from the bottom hub, past an old water intake weir. At the top of the track you can turn right then left to climb up McGouns Road to the skid site, or turn left and drop down the ridge back to the bottom hub.

Access Info

Wakari Creek tracks have been developed for all rider skill levels, with a focus on developing a mix of easy and to intermediate grade tracks. There are also some skills obstacles. The main Redwood Loop is readable by children and adults alike, other track require a little bit more skill. We recommend you don’t ride in the forest during strong winds because of the risk of falling trees.

Mountain Biking Otago members Hamish Seaton, Tim Cleminson & Crew along with the Corrections Dept and other volunteers have been developing mtb-specific trails throughout the Redwoods in Wakari Creek Forest. This area is managed by City Forests. MBO also built a carpark on Wakari Road and plan to build a Jump Park as well.

 A technical tight switchback climb with some exposed roots. Gradient is easy.
