Macleans Island MTB Tracks


The Macleans Island MTB Tracks are part of the Waimakariri River Regional Park. These trails are excellent for beginners. They are well built, fast, smooth tracks that everybody will enjoy. Turn off Johns Road onto Macleans Island road. The entrance is directly opposite Orana Park.

The 10 km loop is a very popular one-way track, which is used by a wide variety of age and skill groups. On weekends it becomes massively populated with families and young children, so if you are wanting to set a lap record, don't go on a sunny weekend. The track is all weather and drys fast. It is almost all single-track with a short 4x4 section. The track is also dedicated to bikes, so no walkers should be encountered and you will have right of way! A great track to do night riding on, but beware as gates close as early as 7pm in the darker half of the year, and open till 10pm in the summer months.

There are various other adjacent tracks to extend out your ride, so explore the area while you are there!
