Nydia Track

This track crosses the Kaiuma and Nydia Saddles and follows the sheltered shoreline of historic Nydia Bay. Formed by linking old bridle paths, it meanders through a variety of forests, some scrubland and farmland. The 27-kilometre Nydia Track is classified as a tramping track and is also open for mountain biking.
It is well defined, though rough, narrow and uneven in places.
It is a track suitable for those who are reasonably fit; boots are recommended.
Some of the streams are not bridged and will require care after rain.

Department of Conservation description of mountain biking the Nydia Track

This is a bike ride for those who like a challenge. The track is quite technical and rough, with many rocks and roots to negotiate. In wet weather it is very slippery and best not attempted. In places it is very narrow with steep drop offs. The track is best ridden north to south. Allow 5–8 hours; longer if you don’t have transport to both road ends.
