OCTOBER 2023: PLEASE NOTE THAT DOC HAS CURRENTLY CLOSED PAKIHI FOR RIDING. FOR UPDATES PLEASE CONTACT US, OR, CHECK 'TRAIL CONDITIONS'. The Pakihi Track is downhill magic – it sweeps through a historic stock route in the magnificent Urutawa Forest, a journey surrounded by fern-filled forest and alongside pristine river pools. The advanced grade reflects that the track is narrow in places, with near-vertical drop-offs to the side. The track also gets rockfalls and windfalls on an ongoing basis. You need sound bike skills and you need to ride with real care. For riding, the track is one-way only, from Motu Road.See more
