Thanks to Manawatu Mountain Bike Club, Arapuke Forest Park is Manawatū's premier mountain bike park. Club members have developed 15km of cross country and downhill tracks in a growing network of Grade 2 to Grade 6 mountain bike trails and forestry roads.
Take a look at the Arapuke Trails website for detailed info about individual trails and current trail building projects.
Arapuke Forest Park is popular with walkers. The national Te Araroa Trail runs along the shared track called Backtrack and the various former logging roads create a loop back to the car park with great views out to the Manawatū plains.
On leash throughout. See map.
Car park and toilets.
