The Forest Loop

The forest loop is 35km of really easy riding on Grade 1 and 2 trails, allowing anyone to experience all the best that the forest has to offer.

It’s fun, has amazing views and can be enjoyed by dividing into achievable sections if you are not quite fit enough to do the loop in one day.

Start at the Rotorua Mountain Bike carpark at Waipa by crossing the bridge and following the Forest Loop signs.

There are cool stopping points along the way where you can refuel and refresh.

There are amazing views of three lakes – Rotorua, Tikitapu and Rotokakahi below.
