Mountain bike track

This multi-use walking and mountain biking loop starts from the car park and follows the farm track past the Pou Kaitiaki and turns off just past Heretoka Pa (please no mountain biking on the pa). It continues through the woodlot and past the reservoir which is the water source for the park and a great spot for picnicking and bird watching. From the reservoir you can cross the open pasture and return to the main car park via the Clearfell Track. Please leave all farm gates as you find them. Follow the yellow markers.
