Whakarewarewa MTB Park

Some of the best purpose built mountain bike trails in NZ set inside a stunning forest.

2 hours - Full day 2km from Rotorua
  • Highlights:
  • Redwood forest
  • World class mountain biking traks
  • Amazing forests
  • Thermally active areas
 
DETAILS

The Whakarewarewa Forest (also known as 'Redwood Forest') is located on the outskirts of the Rotorua city. It lays claim to over 130 km of trails so there is something in the forest for everyone. Trails range from easy grade 1 to super duper excellent grade 5 trails, some long, some steep, some with jumps, some smooth and some machine built, come on over and take a ride

It's a world class mountain bike park. That means the trails are well groomed and the dirt is top quality - the trails ride great in all weather conditions thanks to pumice rock quickly draining water away.

    • The city centre and it's just a short ride (~2km) to the trail head at the northern side of the park.
  • There's so much great riding here, you can easily stay for days (many people do!)
