Part of the Motu Cycle Trail, this is the route taken to get to the start of the Pakihi Track which is downhill only.

As you climb the road it narrows and becomes rougher and is easier to ride than drive. Team this up with the Dunes Trail and Pakihi Track for the Motu Cycle Trail, a 92km loop from Opotiki.
