Wetland loop is an easy loop around the bottom of the park. It either feeds other trails heading up into the hills or receives riders coming off rails.

Most of the loop follows an old access road into the area and is wide and gentle. On the north side of the loop is a board walk over a wetlands area. You're likely to see Pukeko birds here.

Access Info

Wetland loop is accessed from the car park. It is best to start from the left hand side (completing the loop clockwise).

Starting from the left will act as a feed to Jungle Scout and onto Jungle Gym, and further is The Directa.
