Maidstone Max A purpose built 1000m exclusive downhill track is situated at Maidstone Park, at the southern end of the ridge top, accessed by car off Seymour Grove or by bike/foot from Maidstone Park. The track contains numerous drop offs, berms, jumps, chutes and single track. A quick and easy shuttle to the top and then you’re back into it.

The great feature of this track is that it is the exclusive domain of Downhill Mountain Biker, and it suits all abilities.

The Maidstone Max Downhill can be found at the top of Seymour Grove, off Kingsley Drive, or off Park Street, Upper Hutt.

Mount Climie A shared track with walkers and possible the odd vehicle, but not usually during the weekends, this track was once the home of the notorious Reebok Eliminator. No official races have been run on the course for a few years but individuals are free to push up to the top to enjoy the views before a fast furious trip to the bottom.

Mount Climie can be accessed off the end of Plateau Road, Te Marua, Upper Hutt.

Karapoti Classic Probably the most renowned and popular race in the country, the ride is available 24 hours a day 356 days of the year, all you need is a bike... The start of the track can be found at the end of Karapoti Road off Akatarawa Road. If you ride the race course you will end up back at the same carpark, there is a good map of the area in the carpark.

Other Tracks All of the tracks that are owned and managed by the Upper Hutt City Council can be used by Mountain Bikers, provided that they respect the needs of other users. The Greater Wellington Regional Council has a information sheet containing walking tracks that can be Mountain Biked.
