Rotorua...the Spiritual Home of Mountain Biking in New Zealand

Rotorua is a mecca for mountain and road bikers alike, offering hundreds of kilometres of outstanding mountain bike trails through forests and volcanic terrain, as well as wide open highways to get some road training (or races) under your belt.

Whakarewarewa Forest on the southern outskirts of Rotorua contains one of the oldest trail systems in the country. These master crafted trails have an unbeatable blend of proximity to the city centre, riding surfaces, topography and they are surrounded by trees that have size & variety.

The Redwoods is a trail system that has been growing since the late 80s, and it has been designed to pack as much fun into a small area as possible. You can take a 2.5 hour ride without any repeated sections, while never getting further than about 2 kms in a straight line from the trailhead.

There is a legal right of access by the public for recreational activities but forestry management go far beyond their obligations to make the forest such a great playground for bike riders.

Map info: 

The recreation guide, which includes a trail map, is available for purchase from the gift shop at the Long Mile Visitor Centre or via post by contacting redwoods@rdc.govt.nz

RideRotorua.com recommends the Manky (Map/Hanky) – A trail map on cloth. This is much better than the Rec Guide in our opinion.
