Bald Hill Mountain Biking

Bald Hill, Knutsford Road, Longwood Forest

The 47km, grade 2/3 mountain biking track climbs through Longwood Forest to the very top of Bald Hill - one of the best lookout points in Southland with views of the Southland Plains, Fiordland and Stewart Island.

From Otautau, follow Knutsford Road until you hit 4-wheel drive gravel roads or head along Jubilee-Hill Road north of Otautau. The track heads towards Bald Hill from there, with plenty of other bikeable forestry roads along the way.

 

This trail is considered a Grade 2/3 - Intermediate trail based on the Kennett Brothers grading system which is widely used by New Zealand riders. For more information on the grading go here.
