The Red Bike Treasure Trail begins and ends at the Taupo i-SITE on Tongariro Street. There is plenty of all-day parking on Story Pl, behind the i-SITE.
The trail is an easy-grade 1 sealed pathway - even tots on training wheels can manage this one. With stunning views over the Waikato River, Taupo Boat Harbour and Lake Taupo, there are plenty of places to stop and enjoy the activity on the waterways. Riverside Park is also the perfect place for a picnic lunch along the way.
We recommend starting and finishing the Red Bike Treasure Trail at the Taupo i-SITE (although there are many access points along the trail).
Keep an eye out for the red bikes hidden along the trail and collect the code letters as you ride!
