Ride - Great Lake Trails
Ride the Waihaha section of the Great Lake Trails with FourB. Discover towering volcanic rock cliffs, spectacular views and a waterfall hidden deep in the Waihaha Valley. The trail has been built with flowing corners and fun downhills, and some short switchback climbs to keep you honest!
30km | Intermediate | Grade 3
If you're keen to ride further, you can arrange for the water taxi to drop you at Kawakawa Bay to ride the second half of the Kawakawa section of the Great Lake Trails back to Kinloch (9km).
Finish your epic ride with a well-earned locally-brewed craft beer and late lunch at the Tipsy Trout overlooking Kinloch beach.
