Te Iringa

Te Iringa is a 38km long return mountain bike ride and one of the most technical grade 5 trails in New Zealand. For avid mountain bikers this is trail you must tick off your bucket list.

The Te Iringa trail is a DOC managed trail set deep in the Kaimanawa Forest Park backcountry. Navigating steep hills, stream crossings, wetlands and fallen trees will challenge even the most expert of mountain bike riders - and this is what makes it so special.

While the trail has had a significant upgrade in recent years, it still has long carry sections and should only be attempted by expert riders, or those who have plenty of gear to stay out overnight.
