Permission for this build was granted by the local Iwi, Ngati Whakaue who are in charge of the Tokorangi triangle of land on the ridge above the city. Toko means 'to prop up' while Rangi refers to the 'sky'. The position of this track on the high point of the ridge makes this name very appropriate.

The trail meanders down the northern slope of the hill overlooking Rotorua City and Lake Rotorua. Fast and flowy, with berms but no real jumps to speak of, this is pump and roll territory.

After the initial young pine plantation the trail drops into native bush and forest and then links with Turkish Delight for a swift run to Nursery/Katore Road intersection.

Access Info

The most common route is to climb the steady gradient of Katore Road to the top. An alternative is to climb Tokorangi Pa Road which has a couple of testing steep pinches. If entering from the Long Mile Drive side of the forest the As You Do trial climbs to further up Tokorangi Pa Road which is close to the top of Katore Road. From the high point of Katore road a short, easy trail is marked to take you to the top of the hill. The entry is right next to the harder grade Corridor trail.
