Hyltons Pit

Situated at the corner of Brunswick Rd and Hylton Street, Aramoho, Wanganui. Park by the gate at the entrance on Brunswick Road. There is a map on the board at the gate. Good riding tracks offering a bit of everything. Serious cross country riders can get a good workout on its excellent single track. Currently it is the cross country venue for the New Zealand Masters Games and the North Island Secondary School Championships. Walkers and people with dogs use this area; most of the dogs are not on leads but seem to know to keep away from bikes. The club has been granted the right to occupy the park by the district council, so development work is planned to make it a mountain bike specific facility worthy of any event.

Hylton Pit Tracks As you head up the hill on the gravel road the PD loop is on your right, a lower track enters from the bottom of the hill but half way up the hill the main track enters and the track sweeps down the hill before climbing back up to the road that you were on. From the top paddock the track weaves it’s way all over the park with short climbs and down hills, most of these tracks can be ridden both ways so be on the lookout when going downhill for others coming up.
