Walking and biking in Hanmer Springs

One of the great delights of Hanmer Springs is the extensive walking and mountain biking trails catering for every skill level. The network is continually growing with new mountain bike trails on the slopes of Mt Isobel being established - extensive hand building of these new advanced and expert grade trails is almost complete. Timber harvesting has meant some trail closures but also the opportunity for new lines and new trails to be created.

Within the Heritage Forest area, trails catering for Easy grade riders have recently been opened, including the new Snakes n Ladders track, and more are under construction.

The Forest Amble trail, so well known with the amazing sculptures along it, is getting a new section in the open harvested area, hopefully to be opened again during winter.

Keep an eye out for the opening and naming of all these new trails on the Hurunui Trails and Hanmer Springs Mountain Bike Club websites.
