Wellington City Council sought your views on the draft Makara Peak Mountain Bike Plan.

The draft Plan proposed a new trail model to provide a greater choice of riding options and give riders opportunities to spend more time at the park. Subject to funding, the plan proposed to:

  • Develop 24 new track sections (16 kilometres) over the next ten years and upgrade 3.5 kilometres of existing tracks. This will enable the park to accommodate up to 1000 people per day.
  • Make the main entrance on South Karori Road more of a hub for visitors to Makara Peak. It is proposed to increase parking for up to 36 cars as well as an area for overflow parking. The design will also allow for space between bikers and cars.
  • Develop more picnic and rest areas, and shelters throughout the park.
