629 Downhill MTB Track, Nelson NZ
Got its name because the top of the hill is 629m asl and coincidentally the track is also a 6.29km round trip!!! When first established, the track featured a section of woodwork & log drops.....unfortunately this was all destroyed during logging. The track is now back up and running (without the woodwork section) and still offers a steep, technical descent guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping!!
Oh and did I mention that despite being logged there are still plenty of trees to beware of, and that the GoPro lens makes this track look flat??
In the words of others:
"There has been some serious logging affecting this ride. It has now been reopened, but is even more extreme than before. One set of three switchbacks requires you to commit or die! "
So yeah....enjoy and get amongst!!
