CRATERS OF THE MOON BIKE PARK

BIKING THE CRATERS OF THE MOON BIKE PARK

No cycling trip to Taupo is complete without paying a visit to craters mountain park, over 50km of tracks and this is 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 if free draining, meaning all year round riding is possible even after the heaviest rain falls.

Total Distannce 50km+ Recommmended time 4 - 8 hours depending on itinerary

GETTING THERE

Craters itself is about a 10 minute drive North of Taupo heading out on SH1. For anyone hiring bikes we have bike racks available if you want to head out in your car. Otherwise you can ride the huka falls rotary ride which is a 5m trip, this makes for a good warm up and leads straight to craters of the moon. For directions don’t be afraid to ask one of our friendly team for more info.
