Makairo Track

Regional Ride

Wairarapa, North Island

This is a very exposed track with steep drops off the side and should not be attempted in adverse weather. On a good day it is a great ride, nearly always muddy winter or summer, reasonably technical and overgrown 4WD track but worth the trip with great views to reward your efforts.

Always take a windproof jacket and long trousers and tops recommended because of a bit of stinging nettle on route. It is possible to ride right through to the other end with transport required to drive out to Dannevirke; however it is not as ride able down the other side.
