We love the riding in the Whakarewarewa Forest and this is an awesome intermediate loop. This is a long, flowy descent that might have you thinking about a pedal back up for more.

Thanks to Bike Culture for helping to build this route.

      15-March Up to top extension, opened up the last bit to enter and roughly dug in the return loamy drop. Left to “ride in” and hope some rain comes as it’s very dry and powdery. Rode section today...climb a bit tight and steep still some work to do! Down loamy as! It’ll cut in ok with bikes and time
