Craters Mountain Bike Park
Great Lake Walkway
Voted New Zealand's Favourite Urban Ride in 2017, the Great Lake Walkway along Taupō's lakefront is bike riding at its most basic level — even tots with training wheels can cope with this ride. Perfect for the whole family with great lunch, coffee, ice-cream and picnic spots along the way.
The Huka Trails vary between grade 1 to 3 and meander along both sides of the Waikato River, connecting Taupō town with Huka Falls, Aratiatia Dam, the Wairakei Tourist Park and Craters Mountain Bike Park. Take a leisurely short ride or make a day of it.
Waikato River Trails
Sections of the Waikato River Trails are suitable for children of all ages. These are the Karapiro, Maraetai and parts of the Whakamaru sections. Other sections; Waipapa & Arapuni are more suited to older teenagers.
