West Coast Mountain Biking - Reefton Gold

Reefton Reefton Gold West Coast New Zealand

The old gold miners, timber millers and horse packers of the West Coast knew how to build a track and make it last. After all, their money was riding on these tracks. Nowadays, many of these historic tracks can still be ridden, but with a more sophisticated ride - a mountain bike. Track surfaces range from smooth wide gravel to benched single track to muddy and rocky 4WD roads. There is terrain suitable for all abilities so get out there amongst it and enjoy the hard work of those pioneers.
