Mountain Biking Skyline Gravity Bike Park

***   Add a review
#95 of 387 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#6,699 in the world

In their own words, quoted from http://www.skyline.co.nz/rotorua/Mountain_Biking...

Skyline Rotorua is now home to New Zealand's first year-round Gondola assisted bike lift, accessing world-class downhill mountain biking. Skyline Rotorua MTB Gravity Park gives riders easy access to a 10.5 kilometre trail network featuring trails with varying terrain for all ability levels. Soak up the scenery cruising down Simple Jack, or see the trees as a blur as you rip into steep techie terrain on Ten Fifty One.

The Skyline gondola takes the hard work out of the park's 200-metre vertical rise. The dedicated gondola cabins are designed to take up to four bikes and riders per trip allowing up to 3000 downhill runs per day.

Skyline Rotorua offers a range of Gondola assisted bike passes, from half day to full day or season pass. Ride from as little as $2 per run with our new uplift passes.

Check out the website for more details and images.

    Almost certainly worth a look if you can afford it.
