Makara Peak offers the largest amount of purpose built mountain bike priority trail in the Wellington Region. Its 30+ km of tracks offer something for everyone but be prepared to climb up in order to enjoy some great views and long descents. With both short and long loop options, variations that will take you off the beaten path and challenging terrain, you will want to come back a few times to really experience everything Makara Peak has to offer.
