Ruapehu Mountain Bike Club - Uenuku Pines Trails

Have fun but respect others & the environment!

The way you ride & conduct yourself with others, and the respect you show to the environment has an impact on how Ruapehu MTB Club is seen by our community. Please be a considerate trail user and help give Ruapehu MTB Club a great name.

All our tracks are on private land that we have been very kindly granted access to from Uenuku/NZ Forest Managers.  We rely on solid relationships that have been developed over many years with the landowners and managers, so that we can have access to these great locations, to be able to build trails and for everyone to enjoy on their bikes.
