Description

This driveway is included here because it provides the most obvious entrance to the top of the Truby King Park.

From the northern-most point of the driveway, drop down into the trees where there are jumps and tracks being developed by the Wellington Mountain Bike Club and Wellington City Council.

Just beyond the top of this track, 20m into the trees, there is a sign that says: "This area is being developed by Wellington Mountain Bike Club with support from the Wellington City Council. Please give way to walkers, check landings are clear before each run and ride to your ability. If you would like to help with this project, please email wgth@mtbclub.org.nz".

Getting there

Starts and ends on Manchester Street, under the archway that says "Karitane".

Other notes

For safety reasons proceed around the loop in the clockwise direction. That is, if going up the driveway then take the left-hand branch of the loop.
