GENESIS IN MEMORIAM
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN: Genesis is the track that started it all - the first one built by Fred Christensen way back in 1989. It was arguably among the first trails built anywhere expressly for bike riders to have fun on, and a great example of the vision Fred showed in kicking off the trail building in the forest. Originally called Circuit Track, was 3.5km long and featured 95 corners!
After harvesting of the pine trees in 2015 it has been reinstated with a couple of variations: See Arepa Loop trail, Te Huinga trail and Mini DH trail listings.
