Matairangi Mount Victoria bike track

We are building a new grade three intermediate downhill mountain bike track on Mount Victoria for bikers to enjoy.

About the project

Trails Wellington approached Wellington City Council in 2021 with a concept for a grade three intermediate flow track on the eastern side of Matairangi Mt Victoria.

The track will provide a new riding experience for intermediate level riders who are not currently catered for in the area. It will also have features that more experienced riders can enjoy. After further design and public consultation, the track was approved by councillors in 2022.

View the new track route.

Construction begins February 2023 and will take six to nine months to complete. The work is funded by Trails Wellington, however, Wellington City Council will be overseeing the management of the project.
