Time: short and long rides....

Wicked riding!!! something for all abilities, super close to town. The Redwoods is one of the massive drawcards to Rotorua - very popular with locals and internationals and hosts some excellent mountain biking events.

There are many cycle shops in town if you need to hire equipment, or get things fixed. The mountain biking area is well sign posted, but if you are planning on doing some real exploring it pays to buy a map (available from any bike shop).

You can spend days finding you way around the forest - have fun!

Awesome bike park, with so many good trails for each level, great to explore by yourself to take a shuttle in between.

Great tracks and trails for all abilities. We used mountain bike Rotorua (in the carpark) which had good quality bikes and helpful staff.

Great MTB trails, very well maintained. I hired a bike from Mud Cycles, it was in a great condition and the owner of the company was very friendly - he even took me to the start of the trails. Kiwis are awesome!

The scale of mountain bike tracks were extremely large with tracks for all ability, although bike hire was quite expensive.
