Connecting Trails in Castle Hill Basin, New Zealand
Castle Hill Basin in Canterbury New Zealand, is an natural outdoor playground – there’s world class bouldering, numerous ski fields and amazing mountain bike trails – however until recently there has been a missing link in the trail network. Christchurch company ‘Ground Effect Cycle Clothing’ organised a trail building weekend with a dedicated crew of volunteers to finally connect the trails in the Basin.
