MOUNTAIN BIKING AT CRATERS OF THE MOON
No cycling trip to Taupo is complete without paying a visit to Craters of the Moon mountain bike park, with over 50km of tracks and increasing every year by the amazing team at Bike Taupo. Track grades range from 1 to 5 so there is something for everyone, even the kids have a few tracks to keep them occupied. The best part is the volcanic pumice soil is free draining, meaning all year round riding is possible even after heavy rain fall.
Total Distance 50km+ Recommended time 4 - 8 hours depending on itinerary
