The Timber Trail Tour is a popular mountain bike trail located in the North Island of New Zealand. We include it in two of our all-inclusive tours. It is a 85km long trail that runs through the Pureora Forest Park, starting from Pureora Village and ending at Ongarue near Taumarunui.
The Timber Trail tour offers a mix of intermediate riding, with some technical sections and moderate climbs and descents. The trail passes through stunning native forests, across suspension bridges, and alongside impressive waterfalls.
Riders can complete the Timber Trail in one or two days, with options for accommodation and shuttle services available along the way. The trail is well-maintained and well-marked, with informative signage providing information about the area’s rich history and ecology. On our trips, we take our time and do it in two days, staying at a very comfortable lodge at the 40km mark.
The Timber Trail is a great adventure for mountain bikers looking to experience some of New Zealand’s most beautiful natural landscapes while challenging themselves on the bike. We have paired this trail with other classic riding in the area so that you can experience some of the trails in the Rotorua & Taupo areas without having to do too much of your own research. Our tours are fully guided with 4-day and 7-day options available for eBikes and mountain bikes.
Our trips are all-inclusive. This means that not only do you ride with an expert guide, but all of your food, accommodation and shuttles are also organized and paid for at the time of booking. The only thing you need to do is show up with your bike (bikes are available for hire if needed).
