Paengaroa to Lake Rotoiti cycleway
This track has recently been opened and will enables cyclists to avoid using a busy section of SH33
The trail to Rotorua forms part of the Bay of Plenty's network of cycle trails and the New Zealand Cycle Trail network. The trail moves 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.
Is this track shared with horse riders?
Horses are not permitted on the Paengaroa to Rotoiti trail. The main reason is that part of the trail is on Department of Conservation land and horses are not allowed in these areas. To find out where else in the District horse riding is permitted select the link below:
