Mt Thompson and Waitohu Mountain Bike Trails

The Waitohu Valley/Mt Thompson Mountain Bike trails are situated in the foot hills of the Tararuas, between Manakau and Otaki. The Kapiti Cycles Mountain Bike Group has taken over the maintenance of these trails from DOC. Most of the work involves clearing and maintaining the old logging tracks, and they are now are working on a new single track descending on Grassy Ridge. With $1000 from the Ground Effect slush fund the group has been able to afford a scrub bar to keep back the fast growing side & overgrowth on the tracks, and also keeping the lower growth clear and tidy on the single track.
