Our Trails

 

Map-Lrg.jpg

As things stand, one can ride from Bethlehem to Rotorua, including a side-trip to Maketu. Sometime soon, the trail will extend to Omokoroa. 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.
