West Coast Mountain Biking - Reefton Gold

Directions

About

The old gold miners, timber millers and horse packers of the West Coast knew how to build a track and make it last. Nowadays, many of these historic tracks can still be ridden, but with a more sophisticated ride - a mountain bike.

More information

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.
