North Harbour Mountain Bike Trail
North Harbour is throwing a Grand Opening party at the new Mountain Bike Trail on Sunday October 6th from 10am-1pm. We will have free BBQ and snow cones, jumping castles, entertainment, giveaways and three awesome BMX Stunt Shows from Flair Entertainment at 10:30am, 11:30am and 12:30pm.
North Harbour’s new mountain bike trail is a great addition to our 1000 acres of open space and parkland and has been designed to suit beginners and families as well as intermediate level riders. Set along 6km of North Harbour’s beautiful scenic river frontage in the Heritage Park area, the track is open 6am-6pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
The mountain bike trail parking/ set off point has picnic shelters, water and BBQs and is also located not far from the start of North Harbour parkrun which has toilet facilities and water.
North Harbour Mountain Bike Track offers a trail loop almost 6km in length, suitable for beginner off-road riders / families. It has a gentle gradient and generally smooth surface with some obstacles such as roots, logs and rocks. This track is suitable for beginner mountain bikers with basic mountain-bike skills and off-road bikes.
For more skilled/intermediate riders the trail also features several (optional) obstacles, as well as a more difficult trail offshoot which has moderate gradients, a variable surface and obstacles.
Things to note:
- No dogs allowed: Unfortunately, due to the protected status of the Heritage Park area, no dogs are allowed in the Heritage Park (they are very welcome at Habitat Park)
- No trail bikes

- Take water (there is a place to fill up your bottles at the trail head), first aid kit, use sunscreen and insect repellent
- Slow down and warn other riders when approaching

- Keep trails in good condition by not riding during or immediately after wet weather
- Respect areas closed to riding – Ride on trails only

- Clean BBQs after use
