The Redwoods tracks in Rotorua's Whakarewarewa forest range from 30 minute strolls to 8 hour tramps.
This park is named after the huge Californian Redwood trees you encounter on the popular shorter walks at the Long Mile Rd entrance. A number of other exotic and native trees grow in the forest also.
Mountain biking and horse riding are allowed on designated trails.

23Sept18. Great park with loads of walks. It looked like the walks would be ok in wet weather but don’t hold me to that!
It seemed that most tourists do the shorter walks. We did a longer one and most of the time felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. No chance of getting really lost though as the walks are well signed.
The visitor centre is touristy as you might imagine. We liked the look of the treetop walk but felt it a little too expensive for us and anyway the walk options are so good.
23Sept18. Brill place with free walks. You could feel lost within the woods but the different trails are well marked.
The Centre is good but tourist orientated. We would have liked to do the treetop walk but we decided the $25 each was too much.

Beautiful tracks and forest! There are many options to choose from ranging from short 30 minute walks to the 8 hour hike. Loads of bike trails around the area too. A popular place but extremely spacious to share
Nice, relaxing day.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
A great selection of walks ranging from strolls to longer hikes, all in the beautiful forest. Wished we had time to go back and do another of the walks.
Great, easy and free. The trees are amazing and the one hour trail was perfect for us to bring our bany on.
Impressive redwood forest, just for walking, many different walks are possibly and at no cost!! Full of people though.

Great walk through an amazing forest. These trees are wonderful, I can highly recommend this walkway.
Great forest, great walk.
Great short tree walk high in the canopy. Safe and child friendly. Informative information boards along the walk. A great hour spent.
The walk was nice, but sometimes the directions was not really clear.
Nice walk, although it was among non-native trees.
Awesome walk through the Redwoods and up to the lookout where you can see the geyser.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
