      Araheke MTB Park

      The name “migratory path” refers to the tuna (eels) that use the Kaitoke river flowing from Lakes Pauri and Wiritoa through the MTB park to the sea. They are an important source of food for the local Maori.

      The park has 10km of tracks in two separate areas – Wiritoa and Pauri – joined by a short section (300m) of road. The access turnoff is signposted on State Highway 3, 3km south of the Whanganui River motorway bridge, onto Kaitoke Rd. It is another 3km to Lake Wiritoa Reserve carpark. There are toilets and a swimming area.

      Accommodation is available (camping and cabins) at the adjoining Lakelands Holiday Park. Please be aware that walkers and dogs also use the tracks.

      Pauri is generally a much easier area to ride, suitable for novices and young kids.
