Paihia spotlight: Waitangi Mountain Bike Park

Get the blood pumping and the adrenaline levels up at Waitangi Mountain Bike Park. The stunning Waitangi Endowment Forest is the home of the park, and there are many trails you can explore, depending on your experience level. Some trails are around 500m, while others can get up to 2.2km.

There are trails to suit all experience levels, from ‘grade 2’ trails, which are considered beginner trails, right through to ‘grade 5’, which are for the advanced mountain bikers. Explore all the different trails

There’s a cafe at the park that’s open during weekends and school holiday weekdays.

Our motel is located just an eight-minute drive away from the park (or an 18-minute bike ride if you’d prefer). We also offer secure bike storage and bike wash facilities at Swiss Chalet! Talk to Swiss Chalet’s Phil and Maureen and they’ll help you register your biking experience. All riders are encouraged to register, with all funds going back into caring for the park, and as a nice bonus, registered visitors get loads of discounts around the Bay of Islands!

Don’t forget, you can save 10% off your stay with us when you use the promo code WMR (which stands for Watch My Rate) when you book directly on our website. Enter it in the promo code box at the top of our rates page.
