Day 1 – Waihora & Waihaha
Grade 3 | Distance 30km | Approx 4 - 6 hours riding

You'll meet us at our base in Acacia Bay or in Kinloch where we will set off by vehicle to the start of the Waihaha section of the Great Lake trail to begin your riding leg. This trail has breath taking views of the Waihaha river canyon and waterfall (a must see hidden gem). It is surrounded by lush native bush including Tanekaha (celery pine) which is endemic to this region of the North Island. You will also see large outcrops of ancient volcanic rocks along the trail. The trail is on a mixture of pumice and natural dirt trails that descend into Kotukutuku Stream – via bridges and board walks to waterfall, then to lake edge.

At the Kotukutuku landing (a tranquil bay) you will be met by the boat transporter, where we will load bikes and head back to Kinloch. Acacia Bay (if big group) whilst eating a packed lunch.

Day 2 – Orakau and K2K (Kawakawa Bay to Kinloch)
Grade 3 | Distance 19km | Approx 2.5-3 hours

Start at Whangamata road car park, and finish in Kinloch or Whakaipo Bay. On this Ride you will follow the trail down Orakau stream and through flax wetlands, native bush to Kawakawa Bay (beautiful bay on lake edge). From Kawakawa bay start steadily climbing rough native bush to headland which provides great views over Lake Taupo, from the headland you will start descending back down into Kinloch, for a lunch break then continue onto W2K if you want too.
