Begin your ride at Atiamuri, the southernmost point of the Waikato River Trail. This 26km section is almost always in sight of the scenic and expansive Lake Whakamaru.
Watching over you just after the Atiamuri Dam is the stunning half-million-year-old Pohaturoa volcanic plug, a magnificent historically significant feature.
The Waipapa section combines high quality custom-built trails through native bush, along with long flowing forestry trails.
The Timber Trail is 82km of premium mountain biking through the Pureora Forest.
Discover everything the Timber Trail has to offer and ride the full 82km over 2 days.
Arapuni village is a favourite spot for coffee and lunch, a cafe located only 400 metres from the historic Arapuni swing-bridge. This amazing structure soars over the top of a working power station built in the 1920s and is an absolute must.
The Karāpiro section goes through native bush with short climbs and downhills to a unique wetland, where you cycle on a 500m-long boardwalk, all alongside the edge of the Waikato River and Lake Karapiro.
The final few kilometres of trail follows open farmland and pastures before finishing at the Pokaiwhenua Bridge carpark.
