We're building a new skills park at Makara Peak Mountain Bike Park! But we need your help to make it happen.

With input from the Makara Peak Supporters, WCC, WORD and local elite downhiller Bryn Dickerson, Southstar Trails have put together an amazing plan to build a completely new skills park.

We've raised $25,000 through generous grants from NZ Community Trust and Karori Brooklyn Community Charitable Trust (KBCCT via Lion Foundation) to get the project off the ground and work underway. But we need your help to raise another $15,000 to finish the project.

It's going to be ideal for for kids and beginners right through to seasoned experts. There will be jumps and features of all shapes and sizes, professionally built in a way to help riders safely progress their skills.

If you're keen to get your kids into mountain biking, this will be the first to visit after buying them a bike. Parents and instructors will be able to better supervise kids and beginners, with loops created to enable riders to session lines to improve their skills and build their confidence.

If you're an advanced or expert level rider there's going to be lines with the sort of features you've always wanted at Makara Peak.

About us

The Makara Peak Supporters are creating a world-class mountain bike park with tracks for all skill levels, in a restored native forest.

Use of funds

All funds go directly to paying Southstar Trails to build the new skills park.
