Close to central Whanganui, the Hylton’s Pit trails are a mix of mainly hand-built, cross-country singletrack with a little bit of everything thrown in.The tracks have been built and maintained by the Wanganui Mountain Bike Club, with permission of Whanganui District Council. A series of linked trails join for a 6.8km loop.
In addition, there’s a 900m professionally built flow trail that runs from the top back corner of the park down to the Brunswick Road gate.
A full 9km cross-country circuit begins at the Brunswick Road gate.
Hylton’s Pit is situated off Brunswick Road, Aramoho, Wanganui opposite the Ravensdown Fertiliser Bulk Store.
