About the trail

Spicer Link is one of the most popular trails within Te Ara a Rangituhi. This flat, easy trail is ideal if you’re out for a leisurely family walk or learning the basics of mountain biking.

The trail weaves through the Porirua bush, leading walkers on a 45-minute journey. Allow more time if you have young children — the path offers glimpses of fairies tucked in among the trees.

Spicer Link is a shared, two-way trail and serves as a catchment for some of the downhill mountain biking trails in Te Ara a Rangituhi. Bikers are expected to give way to walkers.

The trail starts approximately 100m north of the Raiha Street entrance to Te Ara a Rangituhi and from Spicer Botanical Park in Porirua.
