On one of our first mornings in Rotorua, my girlfriend and myself were picked up from our accommodation in a van by our great guide Wade (and his awesome dog Flynn), after which we were driven 15 minutes out of town to the Redwoods forest. Not really having a lot of mountain biking experience, we were quickly set up with some high quality Giant aluminum framed mountain bikes, given a quick rundown of the basics, then made our way out of the flat carpark and into the trails. Wade was really knowledgeable about the area, and really receptive to our experience level, guiding us through some very easy trails, through some beautiful scenery, gradually building us up to some more exciting riding as we improved. Wade basically gave us the freedom of how long we wanted to go for (with our own fitness being the only thing that made us eventually go in), and I think we rode for just under 3 hours in total.

The whole vibe from the staff was really friendly, and their base cafe there served some exceptional coffee (which according my barista girlfriend, is of some of the highest quality we've had on our trip) and baked goods upon our return. Would definitely go back again, and recommend.

I spent 2 days in Rotorua and had a ride in the forest both days. From the Dipper (a great trail to warm up and finish on) to the A-Trail and all the ones in between I was very impressed with the park. The gravel logging roads fill the need for speed and the wide variety of trails through bush and forest cater for some more technical riding. Great to see the park used by families and "pro's" alike. Both days offered something different and kept a group of 40 year olds fully entertained. We'll be back for sure!

Very lucky to have such fantastic amenities available (and free) for everyone.

We hired four bikes for a half day. We booked our time slot and received personal and friendly assistance with our bikes and advice in tracks to ride.
The bikes are quite new and performed well.
A lot of fun.

I spent half a day on tracs enjoying the forest and challenge of mountain biking. I rented the bike from central of Rotorua and reviewed good instructions and advices for the day.

Tracs are well marked, there are 5 different levels to choice from. (For start is recommended to keep on tracs 1-3.)

If you are in to forest, adrenaline boost, challenging ourself and not affraid of getting few falks and mud on our clothes this is thing you should not miss while visiting Rotorua.
