Mountain bike park just outside of Napier. Run by the HBMTBC.”Waipunga” and “Tait” blocks are being logged in the coming years, so a new park, “Mill Block”, is being established right next to it behind the power plant.

Most trails are rugged to an extent, with some grooming, however some trails are neglected so rough and some are refined very well.


Finding the Trail Head

[get_the_ID=73913]SELECT wp_posts.* FROM wp_posts WHERE 1=1 AND wp_posts.ID = 73913 AND wp_posts.post_type IN ('post', 'page', 'attachment', 'event', 'review', 'feature', 'how_to', 'destination') ORDER BY wp_posts.post_date DESC

Keep following SH2 north out of Napier, until you see the Mountain bike park sign just past (1km) the Napier/Taupo road.

The new block however is even further up SH2, and is behind the power mill. There is clear signaage.
