Currently under construction, the Paengaroa to Rotoiti cycle trail is expected to be finished by April 2019.
This link will enable cyclists to avoid using a busy section of SH33 and when completed, the trail to Rotorua will form part of the Bay of Plenty's network of cycle trails and the New Zealand Cycle Trail network. The trail will move through beautiful native bush from Paengaroa into the lakes area North of Okere, with cyclists able to cycle into Okere and, in the future, to Rotorua, or back to Papamoa.
The trail has a gravel surface for about 10 kilometres with stunning views to the offshore islands and Bay of Plenty coast. Along the way are the Paengaroa cafes, the Comvita Visitor Centre, with onward options to Papamoa Beach or Maketu.
