The track goes down to the Puarenga stream past an old pumping station, buildings, and pipes from when Rotorua still got its water supply from the Waipa Spring

    The Te Ara Ahi Trail (Thermal by Bike) uses his trail as it's exit from Rotorua so it's nice and wide and easy.
    If you want to head out to Whaka Forest Network from the southern end of Rotorua, this is the best way to go.
