The Whirinaki Forest Mountain Bike Track is purpose built and weaves through one of the most spectacular
and interesting forests in the world, providing the quintessential Whirinaki riding experience.
The track is designed for the recreational mountain biker and requires a low/medium fitness and skill level
(grade 2). The track is 16 km and shorter sections of the track can also be ridden. It is the perfect introduction
to biking in the Whirinaki.
The track starts from south of Minginui village. Veer right as you approach Minginui to stay on Minginui Rd, and then right again onto Old Te Whaiti Rd. Cross the river and turn left onto Old Fort Rd (there's a picnic area and mapboard at the end).
