Craters Mountain Bike Tracks

There's just too much to talk about here. The 80km of trails are from grade 1 beginner cruises for the family to grade 6 extreme adrenalin junky screamers. The trails are exceptional in nearly any weather due to the free draining pumice topography and are though a mix of cutover and plantation forest.

Just be aware that you will need to be a Bike Taupo Member or purchase a visitor pass. Daily visitor and annual membership is available online here or at the Taupo I-Site, Hub Cafe over the road from the entrance to Craters, White Water World or any of Taupo's local bike retailers.

You'll need to spend $10 for a week pass to enjoy the of rides in this amazing mountain biking mecca. Better still, why not join up for a year for $40 or join the whole family for $60. Then you can keep coming back for more punishment!
