Local Trails


Here in Taupo we are home to some of the best biking in the country, with a wide range of trails for all abilities, there's something for everyone.

For families there are plenty of grade 1 and 2 options such as the Great Lake Walkway where, on a clear day you can see the mountains across the lake and even enjoy a quick swim. Then at the other end of the scale we have Craters of the Moon mountain bike park which features over 60 tracks including some technical grade 5 stuff for the more adventurous people.

Here at Central Plateau Cycles we are locals with great knowledge on all local trails, whether you hire a bike from us or not don't hesitate to pop in and ask about the great cycle trails that this place has to offer.

A number of our local trails start right from the center of Taupo and Turangi, just grab your bike and off you go.

Derived from one of the greatest volcanic eruptions ever known, the regions free-draining pumice soil means excellent riding conditions year-round – even in mid-winter.
