Dipper the best beginner single track Ive ever  ridden.  Your young kids will love it and  your non-cycling other half will be buying their own SPDs in no time.

Dipper runs off Pohaturoa Rd near the end of Challenge and  winds its way around the forest for more than 2km eventually exiting on Bakers Hollow just of Pohaturoa Rd.

Dipper has a really easy gradient.  The descents provide enough slope to hold  speed without pedaling but require little to no braking.  The climbs are short and easy, even the most  inexperienced rider should have little problem climbing.

The trail  is wide, there are tonnes of beautifully smooth banked corners, cruisey rollers  and some really groovy flow.  At the time  of riding the trail was immaculate due largely to the convex capping that keeps  the water off the trail.

The more  intermediate and beyond rider will still have plenty of fun on this trail.  If flying around the bends is not enough there  are some steep technical shoots that have been left to rut up.  For the learners there are a range of easy  options to help with rider development.

It really  is a fantastic little XC trail and so easily accessible from the Waipa Carpark.

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.
