Over the last six months, as a project under the Community Max Scheme which was a joint initiative between Work and Income and Tararua District Council, a mountain bike and walking trail has been created in the Upper Wahipai Reserve at the northern end of town.
The trail is suitable for off road mountain bikes and the difficulty ranges from medium to high. At the beginning of the trail off the High Street entrance there are a number of small jumps and obstacles to test agility and balance. There is another entrance via a bridge off Cemetery Road halfway down the hill.
The trail is also excellent for those who wish to exercise their dogs or just walk amongst the trees. All users are asked to be considerate of other users of the trail.
The official opening of the trail will be on Saturday 6 November at 2.00pm. Everyone is invited to attend the opening where there will be an activity for young riders.
