Overview

Mountain biking, Wairakei Park

Address: 415 Huka Falls Road, Wairakei, Taupo Taupo & Tongariro

Description

You’ll find a 4km loop track starting from the carpark next to Helistar Helicopters on State Highway 1, or you can follow the trail to the Huka Falls, then along the Aratiatia Rapids Walkway (cycling is allowed here) to Aratiatia Dam. If you don’t have a bike and are okay spending a few dollars, you can hire one next to the helicopters. This area is so scenic and let’s face it, mountain biking is fun!
