Map-Lrg.jpg

As things stand, one can ride from Omokoroa to Rotorua, including a side-trip to Maketu. The trail between Bethlehem and Omokoroa is open, apart form a few short sections that are being held up. There are also short sections of trail in the Katikati and Athenree areas. Ultimately the trail will be an extension of the Hauraki Rail Trail, providing cyclists with a beautiful scenic alternative to get to Rotorua, and beyond.
