The Kids Loop runs adjacent to the first  section of the Tahi trail but for  the purposes of this video I have shown a route departing and returning to the Waipa carpark.

From a  trail quality perspective the Kids Loop is well built however itís important to identify that the name clearly comes  from the intended usage not from a parental aspect.

  1. You cannot watch from a vantage       point.  If you want to see your       child you need to ride with them and stay close as the trail winds through       thick bush.
  3. The trail has a number of intersections       one of which could send your child onto the Tahi trail only to return 10 years later with a DH World       Championship.

For my 2c,  I wouldnít be letting my infants school aged child ride off around the Kids Loop by themselves which is pretty  sad because taking off into the bush for hours on end was precisely what I did  most afternoons and every weekend when I was that age.

Anally  retentive, overly fearful parent aside ... itís a great trail for kids, they  will love it.


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.
