The track is a grade 2 trail, making it suitable for beginners and families to enjoy.

Allow a leisurely 2-3 hours to complete the 5.5km trail from Spa Park to Huka Falls and back; or 5-6 hours if you choose to continue on to the Aratiatia Dam, which is another 7km along the river.

Trail deviates in areas from the map when returning to Spa Park from Huka Falls, but is very easy to follow. The trail is a two way track so take care on blind corners.

Access Info

The Rotary Ride track begins at the end of Spa Road in the Spa Thermal Park. You can leave your car here for your return, or be dropped off by a friend, family member or shuttle operator.
