Taupo Mountain Bike Trails

Great Lake Taupo is a mountain bikers’ paradise. It is hard to find more variety, better weather and track conditions than what is on offer in the Taupo area…and we haven’t even mentioned Ruapehu yet.

The pumice soil is free-draining so tracks can be ridden pretty much all year round. Then, there is Taupo’s relatively low annual rainfall of about 1000mm. Throw in some superb scenery, a bit of history, and you have a recipe for superb riding. We hope you like it!
