Fun mountain bike trails suitable for beginners to advanced at Rangituhi Trail Park, Colonial Knob in Porirua.

Offering around 7km of purpose-built singletrack connecting to the main 4WD routes taking you to the 470m summit. Spectacular views over to Mana and Kapiti Islands in the North Island, and to the Marlborough Sounds and Kaikoura mountains in the South Island.

The terrain is super-diverse with the sound of birdsong in the native bush, pine forest, glades of gum trees and open grasslands. It's just 20 minutes drive north of Wellington CBD and accessible from Porirua train station.

The trails have been developed by Mana Cycle Group in partnership with Porirua City Council, the Department of Conservation and the local Iwi, Ngati Toa Rangatira.

Check our Facebook page for trail building working bees that anyone can join in, usually Tuesday evenings and some weekend days. Wear sturdy footwear and we provide all tools, sustenance and a social time earning trail karma.
