      This purpose built park accessed off Wainui Rd from Ohope has a 15 kilometre network of tracks ranging from the kiddies loop known as Lollipop to Sleepyhead, a specially designed track with jumps and drop-offs for the more adventurous. The park is in a privately owned forest and requires a permit to enter. Permits (which include a trail map) are available at the Whakatane Information Centre, The Whakatane Cycle Centre and the Top Ten Holiday Park in Ohope. Cost is $5 for a two week pass or $25 for a season pass. Rawhiti is predominantly pine forest and it has free draining pumice soils, so there’s good riding all year. It’s steep country, rising from sea level to over 300m, and while the bike trails and 4WD access roads are well formed, they’re seldom immaculately groomed. In other words, it’s good, hard, honest riding, with tracks carrying entertaining names such as ‘Mal’s Mayhem’, ‘Swamp Thing’, ‘Works Whoops’ and ‘Jac-Hammer’. Be prepared for the occasional fallen punga or slip, and unless you’re a machine, you’ll likely need to walk some of the uphills. A trip to the transmitter tower is recommended. This is the highpoint of the area, and through the pine trees you get great glimpses of Ohiwa harbour.
