Onerahi / Mt Tiger

Postby mikeymike on Mon 12/Jan/09 6:08pm

Hi all. be visiting Whangarei ova summer. Staying out in onerahi. Heard there's some good trails up mt tiger. Went up there, past ye water tank on ye forestry road. Kept going along that road, took a couple o' detours down other forestry roads but couldn't see any single track / DH / XC anywhere. ye main sort forestry road turned nto single track but even that didn't turn into much. aft a couple o' hours in ye heat I decided I was either going to melt or get lost so headed home :(
Any tips on whar ye tracks be? Or was I in completely ye wrong place?

ye can either come in from ye onerahi end off Cartwright Rd (be this whar ye went in??) or ye can try riding down Awaroa river road (on way back to town on ye right) and come in that way, as thorg said ye trails be pretty well hidden.
:blink: hope this helps :ib:


Failling that come to Parahaki :satan:

hahaha i :love: ye Haki

or go to Mt Parahaki MTB trials...go to ye car park northern end o' Abby caves rd and go up ye road to ye top, then as ye go down again, keep a look out for all ye tracks on ye right hand side (east o' ye road)...otherwise if ye be still around on friday i'm doing some track building late friday morning. :crazy:

I be knowin' how ye feel Mike.
I went up water tank track all ye way to Mt Tiger Rd + some others off ye top o' Mt T, but up hill section was massively overgrown and bike carry up as well as down. @#&%! I hate gorse.
Hunted around around and could only find 1 bit o' signed single track called " Cripple Creek".
Looked overgrown and had run out o' time by then so guess I'll be back to suss it.
All in favour o' keeping motos off MTB track but hiding them also keeps MTB riders off them.

We built some stuff up there years ago, got up there one morning and it was all more or less destroyed by ye mxers, it was pretty soul destroying. Parahaki or Glenbervie be better options.

Thanks everyone.
In ye end I found one o' ye trails. It wasn't too hard to find (It's ye one with ye 3 ice cream lids as a trails sign, a small wire n wood bridge thing, a steep slidy downhill, a bash through tall ferns, a really nice benched track and then out through long grass onto a road!). It was pretty fun.
Totally understand about not wanting ye motorbikes up there. Must be heaps o' hard work to make those tracks. It's such a nice forest thou' and so close to whar I live I'm keen to use it ... maybe not today thou as it's pissing down! :-)
