Since no one comment, I went ahead to ride the challenge track at Hunua Ranges...

My advise, don't go! Mud fest!!!

Um what season is it ?
Didnt it pour for 3 weeks solid ?
Maybe get the next Club trail build session there to help clear it for summer , you wouldn't really wanna complain would ya?

Could imagine the awesomeness if the trails were dried. Managed to clear some fallen branches. The trails are in need of repair. Summer ride will be great. The last challenge downhill section was ok, as the drainage minimize soil erosion.

Hi. The trails are holding up really well. The Ak mtb club have done plenty of work gravelling the trails and they now ride really good year round. Just don't bother with the challenge trail ;) . That's the one trail there that still turns into an absolute bog in winter, especially after a buttload of rain. Aitch tee aitch and all that. Hope this message reaches you in time. :D

Hi Bikekiller, the message comes too late...I was beaten badly by mud fest in challenge track. However, the DH challenge track at last section was awesome, though a bit too short. Will whack the challenge track again this summer :)

The trails up the valley are better than the challenge track, even in summer I'M.
