The M u r i w a i Progressive Society last night had a meeting, Hancock Forest management were there and they
got asked about mountain bike access in their forest.

From what i have just been told is that the Forest Owners have accepted that there are trails in there
and have said they can be ridden but you must stay to the trails above the tennis courts. as they are working between Muriwai and woodhill.

They did have an issue with wooden ramps which is fair enough.

Not all 100% yet but sounding good for the future

Thats very cool. We used to stay at the camp ground there and ride the trails. Good times. Might be time for a trip back soon.

Just had confirmation from Hancocks in regard to this.

Here is briefly what they said, hopefully this clears up some confusion:

Coast Road - you can ride on there.
No riding on forest trails, tracks or other forestry roads.
and therefore no building new trails and or structures (they said they will be closely monitoring this)

They also mentioned that the area will be harvested next winter.

it wasn't at bikeparks, thats why theres trouble.
did they just take away the bigger jumps at 51 or everything including tracks, berms,etc.?


where can i fine where area 51 was?
