Black Diamonds to OPEN – June 20

We will be celebrating the opening of our three new Black Diamond trails, Send Helens, Icarus and Shucka on Saturday 20 June.


You may have seen a bit of social media buzz around the trails over the June long weekend as coastal locals were given the opportunity to test out the three new trails. It was meant to be a bit of a secret but clearly their excitement just couldn’t be curbed and honestly, we don’t blame them!


Built by award winning and international trail building super stars World Trail, the three new black diamonds have been designed for flowy fun and adrenaline pumping airs… or as we like to say in the industry, just pure, unadulterated stoke.


Now while many MTB trails close over winter, thanks to our coastal location and drier soils, the St Helens Trails at Flagstaff will be in perfect shredding condition all year round. Also, our local businesses are back in full –swing offering accommodation, food, drink, activities and fun, all in a COVID-safe environment of course, and are ready to welcome you to our little slice of paradise.


To celebrate these new trails opening we have some St Helens MTB merch packs to give away to two lucky riders. All you have to do is share your favourite snap of you or a mate on the trails via Instagram using the hashtag #StHelensMTBwinter. There will be two categories, MTB Shredder – which is all about the air as well as Family Flow, which, you guessed it, is all about showing your family having fun on the trails.  Look out for more information on the St Helens MTB Facebook page.

Below is a picture of the Merch Pack – two up for grabs!
