hey Brook , yiou must have been the guy Kev was talking to me about, All the tracks on Parahaki at the moment are pretty good and we ahve more out at Glenbervie forest if you keen to head out there, we build/ride on Saturdays 3pm on and you can get to the trails via Abbey Caves Road there is a carpark there too, I tried to map it for you but it wont allow me to post it but goto google maps and type dargaville to abbey caves road and it should map it pretty well for you any other questions just ask.. :thumbsup:

Wow guys, just want to shout out your great work you've done up there at Parahaki. I live in Brisbane now but it was great to ride some bloody fun trails when I was back home. I cant wait to to hit them up in Feb next year and ride the new stuff, stoaked !!! Can you shuttle up the gravel road or do the trails link up from the top by Mt Parahaki lookout? Anyways just wanted to show my appreciation for all the hard work you guys put in. Take it easy Sydney :crazy:
