Makara Peak Mountain Bike Park
From downtown Wellington head to the northern end of Lambton Quay (where the Beehive/Parliament is) and turn west onto Bowen Street. Overhead you'll notice some trolley bus wires. Follow those all the way (about 5km) through Karori till they end at South Karori Road. The carpark entrance to the Park is 1km down South Karori Road, on the right (stream side).

Makara Peak Trails

The southern half of the park is covered in regenerating native bush, mostly over 3 metres tall. The single tracks are sheltered but slow to dry out. The northern and higher half of the park is dominated by gorse and barberry. The tracks are exposed to all winds, but dry out faster after rain. The trails are known to be reasonably smooth with only a few loose rocks here and there. Most are one-way so you don't get too many head ons happening.
