Head out to Muriwai and park next to the free public tennis courts. From there, ride down the gravel road and then jump over the wire fence on your right. You'll be able to follow a little grass track on the other side of the wire fence. Before to long you'll spot a trail or two heading off up into the young pines. Pick a trail and start exploring!

I've always accessed it as a 'push up - bomb out' kinda place. If you're feeling keen, you can ride all the way down the gravel road, hang a right near the end, and ride up another gravel road up into the pines. But its harder to find the trails this way.

While i wouldn't normally endorse walking up DH trails, the area is usually pretty quiet. I make sure that i scope the carpark to see if anyone else is already out, then just keep and ear out for anyone rattling down.

Is there a site with info about them?


There's been trails at Muriwai for about 15 - 20 years. Very much on the down low and built by an awesome bunch of locals.
