Getting there

Top (southern) end is on Western Slopes, just off Mount Albert Road. There is a car park 0.15km to the northwest down Mount Albert Road.

Other notes

The track was originally created as a temporary course for the New Zealand Mountain Bike National Championships, held on 22 February 2008. However a subsequent petition successfully sought to retain the track after the championships.

As at May 2009, the long term status of the track has yet to decided. In the meantime, the Wellington MTB Club continues to maintain the course for the benefit of local riders.
