About The Wairoa Gorge Mountain Bike Park
Situated deep in the Wairoa Valley, ‘The Gorge’ is home to well over 70km of hand-built mountain bike trails that run through a lush native and beech forest environment. The trails in The Gorge are sublime, and have to be experienced to be fully appreciated. The grades run from two right up to five and there is more riding than anyone can handle in a day.

I've been to The Gorge multiple times and look forward to going back whenever I have a chance. It's always an epic day of riding. Took my teenage son on most recent visit, he really enjoyed it and want's to go back as soon as he can. Highly recommended!!!

My 13 year old son and I were a little apprehensive as the grade 5 trails in Nelson were stretching us. We stayed on Advanced tracks with one black track and had a ball, words not enough and picture not justice.CANT WAIT TO RETURN.

By far the best technical hand built trails I've ever ridden, and the shuttle set up and access is super efficient and effective. The staff were epic, very helpful and worked hard to make sure we had a good time. Highly recommend as a must do for upper level intermediate and advanced riders, The Gorge is where it's at! Also it's pretty good value for how much riding you get, we hit it twice in a month and will hit it every time we go to Nelson in the future.

This is hands down the best riding in New Zealand. It probably equals that of Canada. It is amazing no matter what the weather. With limited numbers, it feels like a private park for the day. The shuttles, drivers, lunch hut, and vibe are all incredible. The trails are just EPIC! Full faith in the builders that blind drops and corners are all rollable in the wet and dry, and you just have to trust their skill and your ability to stay off the brakes. Unreal.
