Notes:

The Challenge Area of the Redwoods has been completely re-cut after the hillside was harvested for the forest timber, the result is a great set of seriously fun MTB park style trails.  The Challenge Area is only a short and fairly easy dirt road climb from Waipa car park and from the base of each trail itís only a few minutes back up the hill using the same road.

The Challenge Trail is a great trail for opening up and really letting the bike run.  Itís got a heap of really nice banked corners however at the time of riding they were getting a rough so I found myself staying low in an attempt to hold speed.

There are a number of small to medium table top jumps and a couple of much larger doubles for people who can escape gravity better than I.  There is also a gap jump thatís pretty forgiving if you come up a little short, as I did.

The trail is quite wide and due to the lack of trees the visibility is excellent.  Challenge is a great trail for those wanting to get comfortable at speed or riders looking for a trail to blow out the cobwebs.  Challenge is a step up from a beginner trail but is the perfect trail to step up on.

This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
