All trails at Makara Peak have a trail sign at the beginning and at each intersection, with key information to help you find your way around the park.
In addition to being colour coded to allow on-the-fly choices to ensure you don’t accidentally drop into an expert trail, the signs include the direction, trail name, unique trail number, distance, and whether the trail is one or two way.
The rider and walker icons are there to remind everyone that while Makara Peak is a bike priority network, and walkers have to give way to riders, it’s best if we share and be polite to one another.
Below the main trail sign are the sub signs. Grey signs indicate major landmarks (summit, skills area etc) as well as an indication of which trails are coming up next.
At Makara Peak trails range from Easy through to Extreme. Always ride within your ability and check signage at the start of each trail.
