At the Kinloch Domain you will find a shelter with a map and bike washdown area. Start riding the W2K section of the Great Lake Trail from here. Follow the markers around the marina, along the lakefront and then up a gully to Boojum Dell. The W2K trail heads up the hill from here, climbing steadily up through native bush and onto the headland, providing spectacular views across Lake Taupo to the mountains of Tongariro National Park as well as back down to Kinloch. Once on top of the headland the trail starts a long, flowing descent down to Whakaipo Bay.
This ride is one of our more popular rides for entry level riders. We recommend taking an electric bike on this ride to assist you along the way, unless you have a reasonable level of fitness. This ride is very scenic, taking in the Huka Falls before riding North to view the Aratiatia Hydro Dam which opens its gates multiple times a day, allowing a huge mass of water to flow from the dam resulting in a spectacular show.
This trail is a dream to ride with the generally downhill profile of the first half lending itself to beautifully laid out corners and berms, giving it incredible flow. The trail boasts some stunning scenery and native birdlife – tuis and bellbirds in particular – and there are seats along the way at the best vantage points, so you can rest your legs while taking in the view.
Full day away with a guide including transport, equipment and a small snack.
Towering volcanic rock cliffs, spectacular views and a waterfall hidden deep in the Waihaha Valley are highlights of the Waihaha section. The trail has been built with flowing corners and fun downhills, and some short switchback climbs to keep you honest!
FourB mountain bikers and the guides love the timber trail in the Pureora National Park and there’s a good reason for that. It’s one of the most amazing tracks in New Zealand to ride with a bicycle especially one of those full suspension or electric bikes from Four B New Zealand. Check out our video at YouTube of the largest swing bridge in New Zealand with some of our clients conquering this monster.
