|Directions to venue:|
The Redwood Loop is one of many very conveniently located mountain bike tracks in and around Dunedin. And although you can join the track at a number of points, we generally start from the car park off Wakari Road, a stone's throw from Ross Creek.
Although the track is short, it is well suited to beginners, and is perfect for an after-work ride of a few laps.
It starts off descending slightly before ascending 40m to the top hub (approximately 1.1km) on single track with hairpin bends and switchbacks. The track down to the bottom hub (approximately 2km), a descent of approximately 90m, takes you along the creek through fern and native vegetation. Don't forget to duck just after joining the Slytherin track. Bridges make the creek crossings a little easier for the less experienced riders, and a balance beam puts your technical skills to the test.
The 30m ascent back to the car park (600m) makes its way on single track with a number of hairpin bends. And for some added fun just before you reach the car park, keep to the right of the track and ride the see-saw.
