This is the ultimate one day challenge! We may be able to offer this from our FourB HQ on Huka falls rd so you can ride through Craters MTB park as well to finish off this monster of a day. Talk to us about this option... We have completed it as part of our annual FourB Great lake trail "full Monty Epic"
This is for serious riders. If you are unsure we suggest this trail is completed over 2 or 3 days...
Towering volcanic rock cliffs, spectacular views and a waterfall hidden deep in the Waihaha Valley are highlights of the Waihaha section. The trail has been built with flowing corners and fun downhills, and some short switchback climbs to keep you honest! . From Taupo we take you to Waihaha bridge the start of this epic day....You then ride the 31km to the lake where a boat will pick you up at the pre determined time to transfer you and your bike to Kawakawa bay before riding via Orakau and the newest Otaketake trail to Kinloch and then over the archway bridge and following the signs for the the W2K trail and optional head land loop, once completing the W2k trail you exit Whakaipo bay via the gravel road and turn right onto Mapara rd (Paved) and shared with cars so stay left. After riding Mapara rd to acacia bay rd (end of Mapara after a big downhill) turn left and return to Taupo. Highlights include the Waihaha waterfall, stunning lake views, echo rock and of course the scenic transfer on Great Lake Taupo back to Kawakawa bay at the end of this stunning ride. This is an epically huge day and you must be mad and very fit to take on the challenge!
