This track goes from Taupo to Huka Falls.
The trail starts and ends on an easy grade with a technical middle section. It crosses streams, winds through gullies, runs around and under trees, and passes farmland, offering great views of the Waikato River along the way.
To get back to Taupo, riders cross the bridge over the Waikato River and can either go via the 2.5 km Redwood Track on Huka Falls Road or turn left onto Huka Falls Road and ride that back to Taupo.
Alternatively riders can continue out on the 7 km Aratiatia Dam Track or cross the river and head up to Craters of the Moon MTB Park.
