Day 1 – Orakau and K2K (Kawakawa Bay to Kinloch)
Grade 3 | Distance 19km | Approx 2.5-3 hours

We collect you from accommodation in Taupo. Starting at Whangamata road car park, and finishing in Kinloch, this ride follows 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.

Day 2 – W2K and headloop (Kinloch to Whakaipo Bay) Grade 3 | Distance 22.2km | Approx 3.5 – 4 hours

Day 2 starts at the Kinloch Reserve, and finishes in Whakaipo Bay. You will begin your ride from the Kinloch Domain, follow the markers around the marina and along the waterfront and then up a gully to Boojum Dell. The trail climbs steadily up through native bush and up onto the headland providing great views across the lake and back down into Kinloch. At the junction of the Headland Loop there is a Toilet and map from where you have the option to ride the Headland Loop trail (follows the headland outcrops offering great views, but adding 10km). Once back at the junction or if you don't ride the loop you will continue to ride down the undulating pumice trail through that loops around the contours on the hillside through native bush. At the end of the track you will ride through farmland, past paddocks of sheep and down into Whakaipo Bay which is one of the last untouched public and farmed reserves left on the shores of Lake Taupo. This place is so rustic and raw, you will be speechless.

We then drop you back at your accommodation in Taupo.
